In this retelling of Nankichi Niimi s masterpiece, delicate watercolors bring to life the mischievous yet kind-hearted spirit of Gon, the Little Fox. Readers should proceed with caution as they begin this tale, however, especially as Gon is sure to win over their hearts. Like many Japanese folktales, "Gon, The Little Fox" does not exactly end happily; a circumstance which will inspire lively and provocative conversation among young readers.When readers first meet Gon, he is relishing his life as a rascally fox. Each day brings a new opportunity for him to stir up trouble in Nakayama. One day, however, he feels remorse for having killed an eel that was meant for the poor villager Hyoju s dying mother. Ironically, it is this rare moment of conscience that leads Gon down a path that leads to his fate.As with all great folktales, the world of "Gon, The Little Fox" is both extremely familiar and extremely mysterious. This quality, as evident in both the text and illustrations, will greatly appeal to readers, both young and old."
