About the book

Ruby is worried about the fox in the woods. Nonetheless she bravely agrees to go for a walk there with her father and her toy rabbit Rabby. As they walk she and her father talk about fox's appetite for rabbits and agree that the fox wouldn't be interested in chasing her. Unbeknownst to her, Rabby falls from her backpack and is spotted by the fox. Is this the end of Rabby? In a surprising and reassuring ending Rabby is returned to Ruby in the nick of time.
