Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The home of Mother Fox and her three babies is hidden by the roots of a tree stump in a long valley. In the beautiful fields around their home, Mother Fox cares for her children, who are so tiny they fit in the palm of a human hand. She brings them treats to eat, and she leads them to sit on the rocks in the sun. But Mother Fox must always be wary because an old coyote shares the valley with them. Though he is lonely, the mean coyote searches for food rather than a friend. "After all, this is the way the world works." One day, Mother Fox takes her babies to the pond to search for food. There, while jumping and frolicking with the bullforgs in the night, Mother Fox rolls on the ground shaking with laughter. In fact, she laughts so hard that she forgets about the hungry coyote. Soon, Mother Fox finds herself snout to snout with her biggest fear. Knowing that they cannot hide from the coyote, Mother Fox uses her cunning mind to escape. With a little help from the moon and a trick of light, she saves her babies. In this enchanting bilingual picture book, renowned author Victor Villasenor casts a traditional folk tale about Mother Moon. Paired with bright and inventive illustrations, this is a celebration of nature in all her beauty.
