Review published on October 27, 2017.
Foxes Unearthed is a must read for anyone and everyone who loves foxes, as this amazing book tells us that the fox from our fairy tales is nothing like the real thing.
Reading this book had me whooping for the fox as he outwitted the people who think it is fine to hunt.
I came away with more respect and love for the fox (even though I already love them and am so against hunting) and boy did I learn some interesting new things. Foxes can play dead, so well in fact that it even fools humans, they can climb trees and eat berries, they can even be kept as pets, although they do smell. There is so much to read.
Lucy Jones doesn’t just side with the fox. She considers the issues from both sides, but her love of foxes shines through the book. After reading this, you will never look at a fox in the same way.
The fox is to be admired and left in peace!
