It takes place many years after the events of the first book in a city that has been built on top of the Lilac Kingdom. The foxes will have to face more modern horrors like cars and exterminators and veterinarians. In it, we'll find out what happens to Mia's and Uly's great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandkits.

As for Mia's mom, we can only guess what happened to her from the hints in the first book. Here's hoping the sequel scratches that itch.

By the way, if you haven't read this, here's the story Beatrix Potter wrote for Mia: http://www.cmheidicker.com/blog/2019/...(less)
