AN ANIMAL ADVENTURE WITH A DIFFERENCE
‘Really fresh, very funny and full of energy’ Frank Cottrell-Boyce
Fox cub siblings Ted and Nancy escape the Big City, on the run from Princess Buttons, the scariest street cat in town. They flee for Grimwood, expecting to find refuge in the peaceful countryside. Instead, they meet thieving eagles, dramatic ducks, riotous rabbits and a whole host of unusual characters. Grimwood is . . . well, weird.
But they grow to love their new life in Grimwood – the forest where anything can happen. And, with their new friends, they face the toughest challenges, have the maddest adventures, learn the biggest life lessons and have the most fun two fox cubs can have.
