This must be the longest telling of FG that I have read! This expansive version has time for the fox to chase bunnies and squirrels. Both failures give him a chance to use the logic that he will employ vis-à-vis the grapes later on. Who cares about a bunch of silly bunnies? His being frightened by a passing hay-wagon seems to have less thematic relation to the story. Eight pages in this little book are then dedicated to the fox's leaping.
