"The Blue Fox" is about a fox whose body got colored blue accidentally. When the forest animals saw the blue fox, they were frightened. They had never seen such a strange animal.

"The Blue Fox" is a story that conveys certain valuable life lessons in a fun and engaging manner. The colorful pictures alone will be sufficient for children to follow the story.

In the book, the story is augmented by learning material that teaches children about the animals and objects in the story. Fun, values and learning are well blended in this book.

"The Blue Fox" is a tale inspired by a story from "Pancha Tantra." What is the significance of "Pancha Tantra?" Here is a story that illustrates the value of "Pancha Tantra:"

Once there was a king. He was a very learned man. He ruled his kingdom eminently. The people of his kingdom were extremely pleased with how the king was governing the state.

The king had three sons. But quite unlike the king, his three sons were dumb and ignorant. The king was very worried about this matter. He was deeply concerned as to who would succeed him once he retires.

One day the king sought the help of his advisors. He asked them:

"My three sons are dumb and clueless. They are not interested in learning. These dumb children will be a cause for worry and anxiety for me all my life. Is there any way to awaken their intelligence?"

Many of them expressed their opinions. The king was not satisfied with any of the responses. Then the king's minister came forward and said:

"Oh your Majesty, there is a very wise man in a village outside the capital city. He has learned all the sciences. I recommend that we send your children to that wise man. His genius can transform your sons in to intelligent and competent princes."

The king was intrigued by the minister's recommendation. "Bring the wise man to my court tomorrow morning," ordered the king. Next morning when the king came to his court the wise man was already there.

"Make my three sons intelligent and competent and I will give you many gold coins and a large area of land," the king said.

"Your majesty, I sincerely appreciate the offer. But I am not a person who imparts knowledge for money. I will awaken the intelligence of your sons and turn them in to princes competent enough to be the heir to the throne. I shall accomplish this in six months," said the wise man.

What the wise man said was music to the king's ears. He sent his sons with the wise man. The wise man had mastered all the sciences and had distilled his learning in a collection of stories. He taught the king's sons all the sciences through such stories. As he had promised the king, in six months the king's sons evolved in to smart and learned princes.

The collection of stories that the wise man taught the king's sons came to be known as "Pancha Tantra." "The Blue Fox" is a fable inspired by a story from "Pancha Tantra."
