The Midnight Fox
'And then, this afternoon,' Uncle Fred said to me, 'you and I'll go after the fox.'
Tom would do anything not to have to stay on Aunt Millie's farm while his parents are away - he likes the city and hates climbing trees. But once there, he discovers a rare black fox with green eyes, living with her cubs in the forest. Suddenly, the summer is full of excitement. That is, until Uncle Fred decides to go after the fox - will Tom save her and her family in time? This atmospheric and heartfelt story is one of Betsy Byars' best-loved classics.
