The Fox and the Ghost King

Morpurgo, Michael

A warm and funny story for younger readers, about two foxes, a ghost and one of the biggest archaeological discoveries in living memory…

In a cosy den under a garden shed lives a family of foxes. They love to watch football, all foxes do. One day, they are surprised by a ghostly voice coming from deep underground. The stranger promises to grant the foxes their dearest wish if they only set him free.

With their favourite football team on a losing streak, the foxes know exactly what to wish for. But can they trust the mysterious stranger?
