This is the Christmas story told to us by a fox who went out looking for his supper and then heard the sound of angels singing.
Let's turn quickly to our first feely picture and meet the fox.
He is at the top sideways on and facing the right.
As you move in from the top left first you meet his magnificent fluffy tail which he is waving in the air.
Foxes usually keep their tails low near to the ground because they don't want them seen when they're hunting but here the fox is very excited.
