George the Wombat journeys outside of his burrow and into a dark forest, where he meets a wily and cunning fox. The fox likes the look of George for dinner and George is so scared he can’t move! Can George get the courage to show the fox his brave side and get away from danger using a tactic only a wombat would know?
