Forest animals wake to approaching storm and they race to prepare. Little Fox worried if all animals are safe. A cold father and son bear approach warm homes, but no one offers help. But Little Fox comes out and offers them a lamp. The bears use it to light their handmade shelter of snow. Then the roof begins to collapse in the foxes’ den and the family scurries out. When they see the bear’s lantern light, they ask for shelter and are generously squeezed in. A strong, quiet story rendered in pen and ink and water color.
