Peri Novi bersenandung gembira. Burung-burung berkicau mengiringi senandung Peri Novi. Peri Novi melihat daerah pepohonan yang belum pernah dilewatinya. “Aku sedang ingin bertualang, aku lewat sini saja!” katanya.
(Novi the Fairy hums happily. The birds chirp along with her humming. Novi sees an area of trees she has never passed. “I’m excited for an adventure, I’ll just go this way!” she said.)

Peri Novi melewati daerah penuh pepohonan itu. “Aneh, di sini suara kicauan burung tidak terdengar,” gumam Peri Novi. Tiba-tiba, langit mendung dan hujan rintik-rintik turun. “Kenapa tiba-tiba aku merasa sedih?” ucap Peri Novi bingung.
(Novi passes the trees. “Weird, I can’t see the sound of the birds here,” mumbles Novi. Suddenly, the sky becomes dark and a misty rain pours. “Why do I feel sad all of a sudden?” says Novi confusedly.)

Peri Novi melihat sebuah rumah kayu yang sudah tua dan ditinggalkan penghuninya. “Malang sekali rumah ini! Dia sendirian, pantas di sini hujan selalu turun dan kicauan burung tidak terdengar. Kesedihan rumah ini memengaruhi mereka! Aku berjanji akan mencari cara agar kau tidak kesepian, rumah kayu!” kata Peri Novi.
(Novi sees an old wooden house that has been left by its owners. “Such a poor house! It’s alone, no wonder it’s always raining and the birds can’t be heard here. The house’s sadness is influencing them! I promise to find a way so that you won’t be lonely, house!” says Novi.)

Ketika Peri Novi sampai di rumah, dia melihat seekor induk rubah dan dua anaknya. Rubah-rubah itu ketakutan melihat Peri Novi. “Jangan takut! Aku tidak akan melukai kalian,” kata Peri Novi. “Kakak, apa yang terjadi dengan si induk rubah dan dua anaknya?” tanya Peri Novi pada kakaknya, Peri Dinda. “Mereka kehilangan rumah dan kutemukan sedang kelaparan di jalan. Aku ingin mencarikan rumah untuk mereka tapi tak menemukannya,” jawab Peri Dinda. “Aku menemukannya!” kata Peri Novi senang.
(When Novi arrives at home, she sees a mother fox and her two children. The foxes are scared of Novi. “Don’t be afraid! I won’t hurt you,” says Novi. “Sister, what happens to the mother fox and her two children?” asks Novi to her elder sister Dinda the Fairy. “They lost their home and I found them on the streets, hungry. I want to find a new home for them but I haven’t found it,” answers Dinda. “I’ve found it!” shouts Novi happily.)

Peri Novi mengajak Peri Dinda dan tiga rubah itu ke rumah kayu yang ditemukannya. Ketika induk rubah dan dua anaknya menginjak lantai rumah kayu itu, tiba-tiba langit mendung berubah menjadi cerah dan satu per satu burung datang bernyanyi. Si rumah kayu bahagia karena induk rubah dan 2 anaknya akan tinggal bersamanya. Kini dia tidak kesepian lagi. “Syukurlah!” kata Peri Dinda dan Peri Novi senang.
(Novi asks Dinda and the three foxes to come with her to the wooden house she found. When the mother fox and her two children step on the house, the dark sky becomes lighter and one by one birds come singing. The wooden house is happy because the mother fox and her two children are going to live there. It will no longer be alone. “Thank goodness,” say Dinda and Novi gratefully.)
