Scary Stories for Young Foxes


Author: Christian McKay Heidicker

Illustrator: Junyi Wu

Seven little foxes in the twisted Antler Wood, listening to stories much later than they should.

The First flees the teacher with dark, gooey eyes.
The Second from six sisters whose tongues tell lies. 
The Third escapes a woman who peels foxes' skins.
The Fourth slinks away from the Golgathursh's grin.
The Fifth wets the ground when he smells Mr. Scratch.
The Sixth turns tail when the Paw finds its match.
The Seventh little fox in the wood all alone, facing down a ghost between branches of bone. 

One little fox stays the whole night through. But can she make it to the end?

Better yet, can you?

Christian McKay's Newberry Honor winning Scary Stories for Young Foxes is haunting, lyrical, moving, and downright spooky. Your young readers will love the twists and turns of its seven interconnected short stories, and they'll be on the edge of their seats as they follow what happens to foxes Uly and Mia...and to the seven fox kits who are listening to the stories themselves.
