Gaspard the Fox signs three book deal

Broadcaster and writer Zeb Soanes to collaborate with illustrator James Mayhew on a series of children’s books about Gaspard the fox.

The series of children’s picture books will be inspired by Zeb’s encounters with an urban fox, Gaspard, who is reputed to be ‘the handsomest fox in London’ and who appeared at his home with an injured leg. Zeb fed the fox until she recovered and a powerful bond formed between the pair, with Gaspard a regular visitor, appearing at the sound of Zeb’s Brompton bicycle and eventually bringing her cubs to visit.
