Shortlisted for The Branford Boase Award 2022

A prize-winning picture book author and illustrator, Nadia Shireen is just as skilful at writing junior fiction, as this inventive, hilarious story shows. Fox siblings Nancy (the tough one) and Ted (the sensitive one) are forced to flee the big city for the countryside after Ted accidentally bites off pussycat boss Princess Buttons’ tail. Grimwood, where they find themselves, is a kind of paradise it seems, full of friendly if eccentric animal residents who love nothing better than a good game of treebonk. Ted feels right at home, Nancy needs convincing, but when Princess Buttons arrives, bent on revenge and armed with a Brain Zapper 3000, and their new friends step up to help, she changes her mind. It’s gloriously silly but still totally credible and a proper page turner, while Nancy and Ted are real characters. Watch out for the wonderful asides from woodlouse Eric Dynamite, and Princess Buttons’ comeuppance is an absolute treat!

Read it in one go because I couldn’t stop myself from cutting off all the laughter that it brings.

It’s one of the greatest and funniest books I’ve ever read. I read it in one go because I couldn’t stop myself from cutting off all the laughter that it brings. Willow and Ted are my favourite characters. They are young and fully of merry-ness. Willow takes Ted on a tour of Grimwood and there are lots of funny lines. And I love the Fairybeast-o-meter. It makes me want one for myself.

This book has been able to entertain me for hours non-stop while making me laugh out loud and I am hoping for more.

Join Ted and Nancy on a hilarious adventure to try and defeat an evil cat seeking revenge after her tail got bitten off! Ted and Nancy move to Grimwood but will it be enough to stop this cat?

This book has been able to entertain me for hours non-stop while making me laugh out loud and I am hoping for more. The characters are really fun and the pictures bring the story to life.

So funny and exciting, lots of shocks and laughs. This book will keep you on the edge of your seat. Ted is lovable, Nancy loves coffee and Princess Buttons is fluffy and terrifying!

I would highly recommend this book to anyone 6-100! It is a funny and exciting book with lots of laughs and shocking moments. Ted and Nancy are a pair of foxes on the run from the terrifying, yet fluffy, Princess Buttons after a terrible accident. All Ted wants is a friend and all Nancy wants is to keep her brother safe.
