The announcement emphasizes that the collaboration between Budapest Puppet Theater and Pagony Publishing House is not new; The tales process the everyday life of a family of foxes endowed with human qualities. Their protagonist, Babaróka, is three years old at the beginning of the story and is just getting ready for kindergarten. The charming and humorous stories are all about a familiar conflict and its resolution in a circle organized: family frictions, poetry, the birth of a little brother. The tale takes simple and yet complex questions as a young child seriously, it wants to show how the world is slowly opening up for a little fox – read the description of the lecture.
