Product description

Little Foxes is a spellbinding animal story from Britain's best-loved children's author, Michael Morpurgo. Now available as an ebook. 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 ...Former Children's Laureate and award-winning author of War Horse, Michael Morpurgo, demonstrates why he is considered to be the master story teller with this tale of a boy discovering the wonders of nature.

By sharon monteiro 03 Dec 2011 5

This book touched my heart in a way that no book ever has. I cried at certain points and found myself feeling as this wonderful horse would have felt during the difficult times Joey went through. I'm an adult and I am certain this book would be an asset to any child reading it. The author is wonderful and I intend to read every book written by Michael Mprpurgo.
