Product Overview

In this beautifully illustrated retelling of a charming story by Chekhov, the little red-haired dog Foxie, whose teasing master lures her out onto the city streets with a tasty bone, is overtaken by a marching band and before long finds herself as lost as can be. Forlorn, Foxie wanders, fearful that she will become a stray dog, until she has the good luck to meet up with a kindly circus trainer. From him, she learns how to play tricks and even sing and soon has her big night onstage when the sight of her long-lost master in the audience sends her leaping up the aisles to a wonderful reunion.
This is a heartfelt recounting of a touching story which will appeal both to young children and to early readers. Ingri and Edgar Parin d'Aulaire have brought the same famed skills as storytellers and illustrators to bear on this tale from Russian literature as they did on their widely beloved, best-selling gatherings of the Greek and Norse myths.
