"In this reteling of a Nankichi Niimi's Japanese folktale masterpiece, delicate watercolors bring to life the mishievous yet kindhearted spirit of Gon, the Little Fox. As the story begins, Gon is relishing his life as a roving and rascally fox. Each day brings a new opportunity for him to stir up trouble for the nearby village. On any day, he might be found digging up yams or setting fire to rapeseed husks. One day, however, Gon feels remorse for having killed an eel that was meant for a poor villager's dying mother. This rare moment of conscience takes Gon down a path that ultimately leads to his fate. The story of Gon is bittersweet, so proceed with caution, as the little fox is sure to win over your heart"--Publisher's website.
