One fine day by Nonny Hogrogian( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 2,921 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on an Armenian folktale, this cumulative story is ideal for reading aloud. One fine day a fox traveled through the great forest. When he reached the other side he was very thirsty. The jaunty red fox stole milk from an old farm woman, lost his tail under the annoyed woman's knife, and spent the day bargaining to get it back. This humorous retelling of a favorite Armenian folktale is a story small children will follow and "read along" with ease
