- A young boy finds a deaf, blind and numb baby fox, lost from its parents in the wilderness. Based on a true story, a heartwarming story of the care and love of the boy and a vet who try to save the baby fox.
- Taichi, a young boy who has just arrived from the big city, discovers a `northern fox' puppy crouching near the side of the road and despite the objections of those around him, decides to take care of the charming creature...
But, somehow the baby fox puppy cannot see, cannot hear and cannot bark.
The baby fox, now named `Helen,' responds to Taichi's devoted efforts to care for her and begins to strive to live.
The boy and his veterinarian family watch over her with encouragement and love.
The story is based on an incident actually experienced by TAKETAZU Minoru, who is involved in wildlife conservation in Hokkaido. This charming animal story is deeply moving...perhaps to the point of tears.
