Today’s book is called “Hoity the Fox.” (Kitsune no Hoitei)
This is originally a Sri Lankan book by Sri Lankan writer and illustrator Sybil Wettasinghe.
A news article about her can be found here.
This book is about a fox who steals clothes from clotheslines and dresses up as a woman. She then pretends to be a traveler to get food from the local women. However, the see her tail and end up teasing her about this.
This is the first book in the lineup by a Sri Lankan author, so that’s interesting for me. I like reading a book by a person from that actual country, rather than by a westerner (or Japanese) author who doesn’t really know the country firsthand.
