Good parents everywhere know the tension of wanting our kids to be curious, to have rich experiences and friends ... but to be perfectly safe while doing it. Little Fox knows all about it! His father (in classic picture book fashion) warns him of the danger everywhere. But Little Fox still frolics with butterflies, scavenges for food, and searches for new friends. Then one day he takes a tumble, bumps his head, and starts dreaming of things that reflect both the beauty he's seen and the scary things he's heard.

And when Little Fox wakes up, he's perhaps a little wiser, but still every bit as curious and full of life.
