    I was really surprised by this book – in a really good way! I love Betsy Byars, and this once will remain a favourite of mine. The plot was fast and brilliant, and the characters too! An all-round great story!

    It was a completely new style. An exciting and adventurous tale.

    One day Tom comes across rare black fox with lamplike eyes, so bright they could burn you, living with her cubs in the forest. Tom instantly loves this fascinating creature. But then Tom’s uncle Bob tries to hunt down the foxes and Tom has to try and save their lives.

    I would recommend it to anyone!
