The Midnight Fox

Author: Betsy Byars
Publisher: Faber & Faber

‘Boy Overcomes Fears To Rescue Fox’ might be a headline created for this story by Petie, friend of the narrator Tom, a city boy who spends the summer on a farm. Tom is horrified when his parents tell him that he is to stay on his aunt’s farm while they are away. But, his initial fears of the country are replaced by a range of new emotions when he discovers a rare black fox living with her cubs in the nearby forest.

The Midnight Fox is a sensitive story of personal growth and mutual understanding between Tom and the relatives with whom he stays.
