1. So Fuzzy Fox ran through the forest, but he could not find the little boy’s 

home.
 

2. No one in my country shall hunt through this forest, and from now on your 

forest friends will be unmolested and can always live here in peace and happiness.
 

3. So Fuzzy Fox came to the edge of the forest and then the three little gnomes 

saw a large castle away in the distance with bright red roofs on the tall towers.
 

4. Then the kind Fuzzy Fox took the three little gnomes and the little boy upon 

his back and ran to the edge of the forest and on the way they stopped to see 

the wounded animals.
 

5. Soon there came a great many people, and riding upon a fine horse in front 

of his Daddy was the little boy, but this day he wore fine silk and satin clothes.
