When Gerald the fox arrives at the Annual Woodland Creature's Ball, some of the guests are a little concerned.


After all, they have heard some rather alarming  rumours about foxes, and their appetites! 

But it appears there has been a small misunderstanding. Gerald explains that he is an entirely reformed character, and is now a vegetarian.


Well, they needn't have worried. Gerald turns out to be the life and soul of the party! He is ever so friendly! In fact, you could say he's...

                   ...terribly friendly. 

The Terribly Friendly Fox

Reviews of The Terribly Friendly Fox 

“A darkly hilarious tale with Roald Dahl humour.”

South Wales Evening Post

"Darkly humorous...cleverly written...and ingeniously illustrated" 

Kids Story World

“The Tiger Who comes to Tea meets Roald Dahl”

Jen Campbell

"A fab story with a wicked sense of fun. The gorgeous illustrations cleverly show how raucous the party is, whilst also subtly hinting that Gerald may not be quite what he seems! … It feels like a book she will come back to time and time again.”

Ivy's Library


“The dark humour harks back to Dahl but…with a touch of the Grimm brothers thrown in too”

David Ballard Books

The Terribly Friendly Fox is also available in French as:
