I received this book very quickly and at first sight was delighted. Unfortunately when I opened the book I saw that Amazon have produced an edition all of their own - which replaces what should be beautiful colour photographs, with very cheaply reproduced black and white photos.

Nowhere was this mentioned in this listing! If it had been I'd have gone directly to a dedicated bookseller where the book would have had the photographs in full colour, as intended.

It confuses me to see the photo of the book illustrating this listing appears to have the same ISBN as the 'proper' colour edition.

How can that (legally) be?

But onto the book - a MUST for anyone who loves wildlife and foxes in particular. A touching and engaging tale of the author's relationship with an orphaned fox cub who appeared in her garden one day.

Beautifully written and illustrated (if you buy the colour edition!)

Foxes are much maligned in this country. Farmers consider them as vermin. Once they are gone farmers will be spending much of their time killing the 'vermin' they hate even more and which foxes have been killing for them for centuries: mice, rabbits, to name but a few. So think again when calling foxes a nuisance. This book was lovely to read. I have had vixens and cubs under my shed for many years and I am pleased that I never had a mouse in my house.

Amazing story, beautifully written but how disapointing is the edition. How could Amazon publish the pictures in black and white about a beautiful red fox?

I am sending this back and ordering elsewhere in full colours.

A little gem of a book that tells the story of the beautiful relationship that develops after the author starts looking after a fox cub Foxyloxy. Louise Wren takes us along on a great journey, revealing how she herself learns about the behaviour of foxes as she interacts with the adorable Foxyloxy and as the lovely creature grows into adulthood. An engaging and delightful read!

Animals do sometimes choose friends that are not necessarily of the same species and occasionally they choose a human. This story describes the relationship that developed between a fox cub and the author, who knew nothing about foxes at the onset of the friendship which lasted 17 months. It was a real education and led to an in-depth knowledge and love of one of Britain's most beautiful indigenous wild animals. Often persecuted and vilified by the media, the author hopes to dispel some of the myths that surround foxes. There are 60 photographs in the book to illustrate the story and many foxy facts that readers may not have been aware of.

A very interesting account of one lady's encounter with the foxes that visit her garden. The book contains some interesting observations of fox behaviour and it is presented in a very readable style. Some of the information about fox biology/ecology is questionable, but overall it is well worth a read.
