    After a run-in with the scariest street cat in the Big City, fox cub siblings Ted and Nancy flee for Grimwood, expecting to find refuge in the peaceful countryside.

    Instead, they are met with thieving eagles, dramatic ducks, riotous rabbits and an absurd game called Treebonk! While Ted quickly falls in love with his wacky new neighbours, Nancy thinks they’re all bonkers. But she soon discovers that, as kooky they are, the animals of Grimwood always look out for each other.

    Now Nancy must ask herself an important question: yes, Grimwood may be weird, but could it also be . . . home?

    Review

    Young foxes Ted and Nancy have grown up in the city; they know its rules and pecking order. But when the stray cats start to organise behind a selfish and ruthless leader—Princess Buttons—the siblings become persona non grata. They flee to the sanctuary of the Grimwood, where things are rather peculiar. Not only do they have to adjust to living in their natural habitat for the first time, they must deal with all the other bizarre residents of the forest. 

    A fun and somewhat kooky, adventure which is sure to entertain. Let's hope young readers don’t start playing Treebonk!
