The life of a fox is a perilous one. If they are not being pursued by farmers, they have to escape the teeth of the ravenous hounds of the local hunt, chasing them through fields, ditches, hedges and woods. Foxes, however, are rather smarter than the Hooray Henrys which hunt them unmercilessly. Our particular fox gets some good advice from an older fox. He is persuaded to leave the Scottish countryside, and head for the great metropolis of London.

What follows is an intrepid night train ride to London, followed by mayhem at Euston Station. The adventure follows the course of the Regent’s Canal, a narrow escape from being mown down by a narrowboat, and kidnapping. A white female fox enters the story, sharing many adventures with our brave young fox. There is a twist in the tale, which might explain why we find so many foxes padding around our gardens, and inhabiting out-of-the-way places like cemeteries.

Victor Nigel Wade is a retired food technologist. He writes for his old school magazine and historical articles for an online magazine. He is a member of the Brentwood Writers’ Circle. He likes to explore the Essex countryside with his friends. This is his first children’s story, inspired by the foxes he used to see when he worked in Scotland.
