A man tricks a young fox into believing that he will give him a chicken. The man traps him, but the fox, through his ingenuity and perseverance, manages to escape. This story can inspire children to face challenges and even to make use of obstacles in their paths to solve problems. This tale is one of the many hundreds of Sufi developmental stories collected by Idries Shah from oral and written sources in Central Asia and the Middle East. For more than a thousand years this story has entertained young people and helped to foster in them the ability to examine their assumptions and to think for themselves. Un hombre le hace creer a un joven zorro que le va a dar una gallina. El zorro queda atrapado, pero usando su creatividad y perseverancia consigue escapar.

Review:

The late Afghan writer begins this tale with, Once upon a time, when the moon grew on a tree and ants were fond of pickles, there was a lovely brown fox. He meets a man who promises him a chicken and then gives him a heavy sack. The man tells Rowba to hide in the bushes so other farmers will not see him eating the chicken. The sack is full of stones, and the fox is soon caught in a net. Using a sharp stone from the sack, he cuts a hole in the net and escapes. Mallam's rich full-color illustrations in a folk style evoke an unfamiliar culture, while the clever fox reminds readers of characters in familiar fables. The bottoms of some pictures tell small stories, and more lessons can be learned here than merely why it is so difficult to catch a fox. This teaching story is a useful addition to folklore collections. -- Library School Journal
