Translated from French

"As a big storm approaches, two strangers arrive in the forest. All the animal families, safe in their homes, are worried, unsure of their motives. So they all turn them away when they ask for shelter, and the strangers are left to fend for themselves. But then the fox family is suddenly forced out into the storm, and they must ask these outsiders for help. Will they find it in their hearts to give it? A timeless - and timely - story about generosity, and the difference even small acts of kindness can make to those in need."--

A Great Fable

This is a story about a community facing a sudden storm and their reactions as strangers in need arrive in the midst of the storm. The artwork is well executed and supports the story. The story itself is well written. The moral isn't subtle but it flows together with a great symmetry to it. The end kinda choked me up a bit. A good read.
