When a little fox’s mother says it is getting too late to play, he decides that he’s not going to be friends with her anymore…
But as the daylight fades and the shadows draw in, the little fox wonders whether it wouldn’t be such a bad idea to stay friends with his mother. As she carries him back to the safety of their den, out of reach of all the horrible things that might be waiting for him in the dark, he is very glad to hear that she’ll be his friend for ever.

"A warm, richly-illustrated story of a mother's steadfast love." Practical ParentingFrom the Back Cover:
'the little fox didn't want to wait until tomorrow. He wanted to play another game and he wanted to play it now.
I'm not your friend any more, he said. And I'm not going to be your friend again…ever.'
It's not always easy to stop playing when you are having fun. So when his mother says it's time to go, the little fox insists on staying. But as the meadow grass begins to whisper and the evening stars appear, he starts to think again.
