A young white fox called Dilah returns home to find his mother gravely injured. Before she dies, she tells him about a treasure with the power to make animals human.

The clues to its location are contained in a moonstone buried beneath their den – but wicked blue foxes seek the treasure too, and Dilah must race to find it first.
