Foxy has a very large sack with just one bee in it. But on his travels he meets a woman with a nice fat rooster. . . "Whatever you do, don't look in the sack!" says Foxy. But the woman does, of course, and when the bee escapes Foxy takes the rooster in exchange! He repeats the trick to acquire a lovely fat pig, and finally. . . a little boy! But the last woman Foxy meets is as clever as he is. She sets the little boy free and substitutes a large fierce dog in the sack - who chases bad Foxy away, never to be seen again.
“DON’T LOOK IN THE SACK!” says Foxy. But everyone just has to have a little peep. Crafty Foxy tricks them all – and into his sack go a fine rooster, a fat pig, and even a little boy!
Can anyone put a stop to Foxy’s wicked plan?
