Little Foxes

When we want an animal story, we go direct to Michael Morpurgo. Trust us and try him. This tale of a lost boy and a fox cub in peril is unforgettable stuff. Billy is bullied at school and nagged to death in Aunty May’s tenth-floor council flat. There’s only one place he really feels alive – in the wilderness by the canal. There he watches over a family of fox cubs. But one terrible day, the fox family is murdered. Unwanted and unloved, Billy and the last fox cub run for their lives…

“Imaginatively written… Highly recommended” Guardian

    This book is so good but quite sad. Billy gets so close to the fox, it is very touching. It has a kind of happy and sad ending but it is worth reading. i give this book 5 stars definetely!! =]
