(Bilingual English-Spanish edition / Edición bilingüe inglés-español) A young fox's ingenuity and perseverance enable it to escape from a clever trap set by a man. This engaging story can inspire children to face challenges directly and to overcome obstacles in their path - and even to make use of those obstacles to solve problems. Adapted for children by Idries Shah, it is one of hundreds of Sufi developmental tales he collected from oral and written sources in Central Asia and the Middle East. Sally Mallam's illustrations provide delightful and imaginative depictions of the characters. For more than a millennium, the story of the man and the fox has entertained young people and helped foster in them the ability to examine their assumptions and to think for themselves.

El ingenio y la perseverancia de un joven zorro le permiten escapar de una astuta trampa tendida por un hombre. Esta cautivadora historia puede inspirar a los niños a enfrentar desafíos directamente y superar obstáculos en su camino, e incluso a hacer uso de esos obstáculos para resolver problemas. Adaptado para niños por Idries Shah, es uno de los cientos de cuentos de desarrollo sufíes que recopiló de fuentes orales y escritas en Asia Central y Oriente Medio. Las ilustraciones de Sally Mallam proporcionan representaciones encantadoras e imaginativas de los personajes. Durante más de un milenio, la historia del hombre y el zorro ha entretenido a los jóvenes y ha ayudado a fomentar en ellos la capacidad de examinar sus suposiciones y pensar por sí mismos.
