Story Summary

Big Mamma asked little Flossie to take some eggs over to the neighbors but warned her about Mr. Fox. Well, not a quarter mile from home, who does Flossie meet but Mr. Fox. With cunning and a clever sense of humor, Flossie makes Mr. Fox prove that he is a fox which takes just long enough for her to get to the neighbor's place.
