Little Fox is curious about what lies on the other side of the river. But the older animals tell frightening tales of dreadful witches and trolls. But when Little Fox spots Raccoon on the far shore, he discovers that there are equally frightening stories about the dangers on his own side. The two new friends soon discover that delights, and not dangers, are on both sides of the river. A lighthearted lesson about the foolhardiness of listening to rumors.
