I'm not sure how my mom ended up with this book, but it was probably my favorite of the picture books she read to me as a little one. I loved the pictures and the fanciful mystery. Re-reading it (I still have the same copy) remains a joy. The illustrations are very detailed and lively and match the story nicely.

If I'm perfectly honest, The Foxbury Force might just be where my love of the UK and foxes originated. It started early. Thanks, Mom.
