A group of forest animals unite to help each other to safety in this classic tale of tolerance, cooperation, survival, and friendship.

He saw at once the promontory of land running underneath the water, and, looking along its length, soon spotted the little collection of

Fox looked at Badger, and Badger nodded sadly. 14 'Toad, old fellow, I . . . I'm afraid there's bad news for you,' Fox said with difficulty. 'Very bad news.' Toad looked up quickly.
