A hilarious story, written in Iban Barrenetxea’s rich and elegant prose and detailed illustrations! It is the last Autumn day in the birch wood somewhere in the North, where in a tiny little wooden house live the brothers Jaska and Kaspar and their sister Masia. At dawn we are about to see how the chain of circumstances that is about to begin will change completely their lives, as well as the life of someone else. Jaska is as tall as stupid, Kaspar is as arrogant and small as easily scared, whereas Masia is a practical and decided woman, who today wants to get a fox scarf and who, for this reason, has sent her brothers to the wood. The plot will be complicated by a wonderful and cunning fox that has got into an argument with three black crows; the arrival of the royal guard lead by the King himself, King Primus the First; a party night and, the next morning, by the arrival of the first snow. A hilarious story written in Iban Barrenetxea’s rich and elegant prose and detailed illustrations, that will not only indicate the rhythm of the story, but also will offer to the reader tender, but even ironic and sometimes caustic winks. A story where it will be clear who is the one and only King of the Woods.
