"A beautiful, fully realized dreamscape." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Little Fox frolics with butterflies, scavenges for food, and searches for new friends--despite his father's warning that danger lurks all around. 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.
