“This funny, clever tale opens with a fox hiding high up in the branches of a tree. What’s he doing up there you ask? Good question! And so begins his entertaining explanation; with a mash-up of nursery rhyme and fairytale characters our hungry narrator is whisked off into all the wrong stories in search of a tasty meal to fill his hollow belly. The illustrations are lavish and dynamic, and adults will also love the cheeky humour. Ages 4+.” – Mandy
