dc.description.abstractThis is a borderline member of a fable collection. I was attracted by the book, and it is a local Bay Area product. It represents a simple story of a hare's house taken over by a fox. She had lived in a Crystal Palace of ice, but when it melted she took over the hare's home. Three daunting would-be protectors are frightened off by the fox when they try to oust her: wolf, bear, and bull. Then the unlikely rooster threatens the fox and stays with his threats until she vacates. The rooster and the hare live together then in their cozy wooden hut. One of the best of the illustrations occurs after the bull has been scared off. The hare lies desolate and crying on the ground, separated even from his knapsack, in an almost entirely dull brown scene. The dark silhouette of the fox glares menacing against white in the house's window. The book is simple fun, nicely illustrated.en_US
