Lon-Lon, a little sand fox, was born in the Negev, the desert of Israel. Lon-Lon lived with his family inside an underground burrow. One night Lon-Lon was allowed for the first time to go outside. He stepped out of the burrow, began to play, and then suddenly found himself alone in the middle of the desert, far from from his home and family. That was the beginning of Lon-Lon's big night.
