he is corrected by Mr. Toad. Then he has a series of stalkings
by Reddy and Granny Fox. He is captured by Hooty the Owl and

barely escapes himself. Finally Danny gets trapped in a tin
can and must use his wits to escape Reddy Fox again.

avoiding the clutches of Hooty the Owl, Reddy Fox and Old
Granny Fox, Mr. Blacksnake, and other pesky predators as he
explores the Old Briar-patch and Farmer Brown's orchard.
