The Tale of the Naughty Fox by Julian Kay


The Tale of the Naughty Fox by Julian Kay

The Tale of the Naughty Fox is the first in Julian Kay's 'Tommy, Teddy and Parakeet' series of children's books. Written with a moral message, the story of the three main characters and the friends that they make encourages children to learn about the world and enrich their understanding of it. In this tale we meet a young boy called Tommy. He lives in a house on a green hill, with a stream and a little wooden bridge at the bottom. Together with his teddy bear and pet parakeet, he decides to grow a wood around their house. As the seeds grow into beautiful flowers and tall trees, they call their new garden Indigo Wood. They create new animal friends who live with them in the wood and play together, but their friends are warned not to cross the bridge that leads to a big forest where they could get lost. One day, a naughty fox comes to Indigo Wood and tricks the animals into following him across the bridge into the dark, scary forest. They can't find their way home, and when Tommy, Teddy and Parakeet can't find their new friends in Indigo Wood, they must do everything they can to rescue them! Beautiful colour photography illustrates this charming story, which is guaranteed to create a spark in the imagination of children everywhere. It is enjoyable for parents to read to children from 2-5 years, and ideal for children 5-7 to read by themselves.
