Whitefoot the Wood Mouse, a very wise little fellow, never allowed unpleasant things to spoil his happiness, and so he was contented and happy, until he was driven from his little home by Shadow the Weasel. Then he wandered far and had many exciting adventures seeking a new house. Whitey the Snowy Owl, Butcher the Shrike, and other enemies tried to catch him, and they might have succeeded if it had not been for his friends, Timmy the Flying Squirrel and Jumper the Hare. But at last Whitefoot found a new home and shared it with little Miss Dainty, who had become Mrs. Whitefoot. It was soon after this that Whitefoot received the best surprise in all his life!
