0 Reviews
When little Reddy Fox gets too big for his breeches and steals a plump pet hen in broad daylight , the stage is set for an exciting tale as Farmer Brown's boy pursues Reddy with loaded gun and Bowser the Hound. Fortunately, Reddy has wise Granny Fox on his side and, with some timely help from other woodland friends, manages to avoid an unhappy ending. Burgess , author of many children's classics, was a master at telling good stories to chidren. First published in 1913, 'The Adventures of Reddy Fox' was one of his finest efforts, and it will delight children today, just as it did their grandparents.
