The Fox Who Painted the Sky is a story about a little fox who wants to find the most beautiful color in the world and paint the sky with it. The fox’s friends suggest their favorite colors; grass-green, snow-white and sea-blue, but the little fox has a solution to please everyone – did you ever wonder how the Northern Lights came to be?
