The Trader Fox is a collection of short stories by Shen Shixi, constituted by Shen’s seven pieces of works: Dandelion the Tigress Cub; Tricked by Foxes, Not Once but Twice; The Trader Fox; The Guilty Horse; Avalanche; Caught in an Elephant Trap; Just a Stray. His works portray different animal images distinctively: a tiger who came up to pay a debt of raising gratitude; a father fox who devoted his life to doing his child good; a horse who got guilty for hurting his master by mistake; a doe who touched the hunter by her maternal love and made him forsake hunting henceforth…These animals have feelings, know love and have a sense of responsibility as well as the spirit of brave shouldering. Reading their stories can be really touching.
