From master storyteller Michael Morpurgo comes “Little Foxes”. Bullied at school, nagged in Aunty May’s tenth-floor council flat, there’s only one place Billy really feels alive – in the wilderness by the canal. There he watches a cygnet on the water and protects a family of fox cubs. Then his secret place is discovered and the fox family decimated. Unwanted and unloved, Billy and the last fox run for their lives.
“On Little Foxes the Guardian said: ‘Imaginatively written… Highly recommended,’ and the Observer said: ‘Combines suspense, surprise and a tear or two.'”
