The Fox and the Ghost King
Published: 2016 by Harper Collins
Level: Primary Years (3-5)
Narrated by the oldest cub in a family of foxes living in Leicester, England, this story is based on some factual information relating to the discovery of King Richard III’s body in a carpark. Morpurpgo has woven a clever tale around this and the sighting of foxes at Leicester City FC games. A very English story but beautifully written and illustrated.
