One day, while chasing a butterfly, Little Fox strayed farther and farther from her home. ” Come back, Little Fox, ” called her mother, “or you may get lost.” But Little Fox was tired of playing near the mouth of her den. “Some day,” she said, “I’m going to travel to the end of the world.” “Oh,” said her mother. “Is the end of the world very far?” As Little Fox’s imagination soars, she tells her mother how she will outsmart bears, tigers, elephants, monkeys, and even crocodiles. But finally, she’ll sail home, because “I shall miss you.”
