LoveReading View on The Midnight Fox

This classic title by award-winning Betsy Byars richly deserves its attractive reissue. Capturing a boy’s fascination with a fox he befriends when he is sent away to stay on his aunt’s farm, it sensitively depicts a journey of discovery for a lonely boy. Tom is sure he will hate everything about being on the farm but from the moment he first sees the beautiful black fox he is captivated by her. Finding out about the fox brings him to take a greater interest in the farm. Suddenly he sees that it is a place full of excitement and opportunities. When his uncle goes after the fox, Tom knows he has to get involved. Can he save his new friend?
