Baxter has a special ball that helps him to cope when he is feeling nervous. In fact, his ball is his world, but Baxter is worried that the other dogs at school might not understand. On his way to school Baxter meets a new friend who helps him to realise that the solution to his problem was right under his nose all along…

Some new illustrations using the original text from Aesops.
|1. A Fox once saw a Crow fly off with a piece of |
cheese in its beak and settle on the branch of a tree
|2. "That's for me as I am Fox," said Master Reynard |
as he walked to the foot of the tree.
"Good day Mistress Crow," he cried.
|Sketch (Anna Violet)|
|The Crow lifted her head and began to CAW her best,|
but the moment she opened her mouth the piece of
cheese FELL to the ground...
