Synopsis

Faraway Fox by Jolene Thompson

Fox would like nothing more than to return to his home, but it seems the cityscape has built up around him. Follow Fox as he looks for a way back home to the wild green land where every fox belongs. Back matter shows readers the creative ways humans are helping to mitigate habitat encroachment in our towns and cities.
