When Father Rabbit sends his three little rabbits off into the world, he tells them to dig themselves safe burrows, because, he warns, "if a fox comes around, you must hide in the ground." Giddy with their new independence, two of the little rabbits do not heed their father's warning. Only their sister takes the time to dig a safe burrow, working day and night while her brothers play. Her hard work pays off, for a sly, hungry fox does indeed come around, threatening the three little rabbits!
This engaging folktale, a Balkan version of "The Three Little Pigs," is illustrated with great charm by the internationally acclaimed artist Ivan Gantschev.
