In this famous Bengali story an old woman travels through the forest to meet her daughter. On her way she meets a fox, a tiger and a lion - and they all want to eat her! Buri tells them to wait until she returns, when she-???+-?¼ll be nice and fat. When it is time to go home, her daughter thinks of a plan to outwit the tiger and the lion. But will the fox be fooled?
