This is about a fox's life as he grows from a little, helpless kit, to a handsome, skillfull dog fox. You can't help but adore Vulpes noble and lively personality. The ending was a little unexspected and strange, but then again, it's sometimes boring when everything ends the same-old happy way. I don't know, you'll have to read it yourself.
