How can I dislike a story that starts "Aesop, pff, some story teller." I thought this story was really fun, and you did a great job keeping the dialect consistent. I almost always hate present-tense storytelling, but in this case, it fits.

(I know you've had this up for ages, but it's your least-reviewed story and I wanted to return the favour you did me.)

Arr! Reviewers Alliance R&R (Request for Reviews) confirmed! :D

That was amusing. Nice piratey accent, too. Or is it supposed to be Scottish? Either way, a nice touch. A good breather from all the heady multi-chapter stories I've been skimming - I mean, thoroughly reading. I'm joking, I take pride and time in reviewing.

Stop the babbling, to the point. I liked it, no general plot, but that's because there is none. Nice characterization, despite the shortness of your story. Grammar's a little off, but everyone's is. I still mention it because it's a little pet peeve of mine and everyone always has room to improve in the grammar aspect of stories.

Woot, woot to humour. You handled it well. Kudos.

Well this was certainly entertaining and different. I think I read the accent right and it made it seem a little alive for me so good job there.

I think this is the first story I've read that highlights crows and talking animals throughout, so kuddos for being different.

I like how he rambles on and stuff and he talks about a variety of things going on. This gives a sense of realizm as in what real birds may be thinking.

The line for me is 'Putty? What does she think I am Billy Mayes/"

I truly LOL'd on that part.

Okay well overall this was rather enjoyable and the way the fox messed up everything was well thought out. The crow almost got those shiny earrings.

Good job!

Aha! This, I very much enjoyed! I had an Australian accent going on in my head for awhile, and then it became Scottish when I realized that's probably what it was. LOL. I enjoyed how you wrote the words; you really put the accent in my head. :] Only thing I didn't like was the absence of some commas, and a constant 'he said' 'she said' at the end of every sentence. When two people speak, you don't need to keep saying who is talking. :) But I liked your creativity. It was refreshing; I've never read a story told by a crow. ^.^ Good job!
