In this very humorous tale, a man greedily hopes to have the skills and senses of a different animal but is so impatient to have his wish granted that he finds himself limiting his abilities, rather than enhancing them. Among other things, this simple story shows children how a blind impulse to ‘win’ without considering the consequences can end in the opposite effect.
