This pamphlet reproduces The Famished Fox. I will repeat some of my comments from there. This play presents a novel version of FG, in which it is a fig on a log pile, not a bunch of grapes on a trellis, that is beyond the hungry fox's reach. The play is ingenious for finding one-syllable short-vowel words for the fox to use! There is a little question in my mind about the fox's inability to get something which seems be resting on top of a pile of logs.
