Eleven and half good night stories with Fox and Rabbit

Fox and rabbit lived far away, behind the mole hills, in a small yel-low house. If they can’t sleep, they count the good nights (335 in total). If they wish each other a good night, the rustling pear tree, the raspberries and the stars join in. If rabbit is ill and in his fever-ish delirium believes that it snows, then fox pushes him on his sledge through the  cherry blossom ‘snow’ in the middle of Spring. They experience adventurous nights in a tent, transport fish in the kangaroo’s pouch and practice how to sleep like bats.
