The Terribly Friendly Fox by Susanna Lloyd and Ellie Snowdon.
Dark humour can be a tricky balance sometimes in children’s books. Roald Dahl was the master at it and Susanna Lloyd has, in this story given us something that harks back to that, with a touch of Brothers Grimm thrown in too.
Does the terribly friendly fox live up to his name, or is he really just sneaky and hungry when he turns up at the woodland ball? You can probably work it out!
There’s real fun been had with the illustrations and depicting the party games where the guest vanish one by one. It does make you laugh!
Overall really good and recommended.
