How the Fox Got His Color
Honnan kapta a róka a szinét

Hungarian Fox Cover

Translated by Andrew Sholtes

“Well, young lady,” my grandmother said with a very serious look on her face as she pulled the bread out of the oven, “Did you know the fox wasn’t always red?”
“Gyermekem”, mondta a nagymama komoly arccal, amint kivette a kenyeret a sütőből, “Tudtad te azt, hogy a róka nem volt mindig vörös?”

I hopped up in a chair and got comfortable as I shook my head no. I knew grandmother was about to tell me another story.
Ráztam a fejem mig felugrottam a székre és kényelembe helyeztem magamat.
“Way back in long ago times, the fox was white. In fact there are still a few white ones,” Grandmother said as she seated herself beside me.
“Hajdanában a róka fehér volt. Tulajdonképpen még mindig van egy pár amelyik fehér”, mondta nagymama amint leült mellém.
“But,” she said, “way back then, they were all white.”
“De régen mind fehér volt.” Mondta.

Szóval, a kis róka átment a mező másik végére

“Then one day, a little boy fox went out to play. His mother told him to be sure to keep his pretty white fur nice and clean.”
“Egy napon egy kis róka fiú kiment játszani. Anyja figyelmeztette, hogy ne piszkolja be a szép fehér bundáját.”
“Now she knew,” Grandmother said, “that he wouldn’t because we all know little boys are full of mischief.”
“Persze tudta” folytatta nagymama, “hogy hiába mondja, mert a fiúk ugye mindig valamiben rosszalkodnak.”
“So, off the little fox went, across the meadow.
“Szóval, a kis róka átment a mező másik végére.”
He decided he was going to see how many things he could go over, under and through.
“Ugy döntött, hogy kipróbálja hány dolgot tud átugrani, keresztül menni vagy alá bújni.
