It is a story that teaches children to do good deeds in a correct manner.
One day in a chilly winter, a cold and hungry fox went through the woods searching for food. He felt so excited at seeing a man sitting on the ice fishing. His mouth couldn’t help watering. He begged the man for a fish to fill his belly, but he still wanted more. It was too cold outside, the man was anxious to go home, so he lent all his fishing gear to the fox for him to fish by himself. Unfortunately, the fox harvested nothing and found his tail frozen to the ice. Then he was desperately shouting the mole, the rabbit and the peacock to come to his rescue. But all of them were victims of his bullying, would they return good for evil?
