The Crab and the Monkey is a Japanese tale. A crab finds rice and wants to eat it. A monkey offers the crab to exchange the rice for a persimmon seed. The crab agrees, but then it understands that it was deceived. After that, the crab plants the seed and a fruit tree grows. One day the monkey passes by. The monkey offers to climb on the tree and to pick the fruit for the crab, but instead of that the monkey eats fruit and doesn't share it with the crab. The crab protests. The friends of the crab come to help it. The wasp cares for the crab, and it wants to punish the monkey. How did the story end? Read "The Crab and the Monkey" to know it.
