The Foundling Fox

How the Little Fox Found a Mother
A vixen finds a fox cub that has gotten lost in the forest and carries it all the way home to her fox-earth where she lives with three cubs of her own. Her curious neighbour is anxious to see the new guest, but as the mother fox tries to pick it out, she realizes that she can no longer distinguish it from her own cubs; the foundling smells, looks and behaves exactly like the others.

This story is intended to help children develop a sense of love and belonging together. It also shows them that love for a child does not necessarily depend on a blood relationship.


“Strong portrayal of mother love and family security will make this book] instantly connect with young children.” ALA Booklist

“THE FOUNDLING FOX is a rare occurrence – an animal story in which the speech of the animals enhances the fidelity of the portrayal of animals in the wild. The simple, taut text flows and changes like a woodland stream. Children will be entranced listening to the story or reading it on their own.” The Horn Book
