"The home of a mother fox, Mamá Zorra, and her three babies is hidden by the roots of a tree stump in a long valley. In the beautiful fields around their home, Mamá Zorra cares for her children, who are so tiny they fit in the palm of a human hand. She brings them treats to eat, and she leads them to sit on the rocks in the sun.
But Mamá Zorra must always be wary because an old coyote shares their valley with them. Though he is lonely, the mean coyote searches for food rather than a friend. ""After all, this is the way the world works.""
One day, Mamá Zorra takes her babies to the pond to search for food. There, while jumping and frolicking with the bullfrogs in the night, Mamá Zorra rolls on the ground shaking with laughter. In fact, she laughs so hard that she forgets about the hungry coyote. Soon, Mamá Zorra finds herself snout to snout with her biggest fear. Knowing that they cannot run or hide from the coyote, Mamá Zorra uses her cunning mind to escape. With a little help from the moon and a trick of light, Mamá Zorra saves her babies."
