While his back was turned, the raven quickly hid under the grapes, and when the fox turned she began to walk towards him, completelv covered by the grapes, so that it loo'ked as if the fruit were walking. In terror, the fox fled, believing that the grapes were bewitched. Triumphantly the raven, with the grapes in her beak, flew back to King Aesop. For her services the raven was made the Guardian of the Grapes.
