Since then she has become something of a social media star, with her Twitter page quickly gaining nearly 4,000 followers and her reputed taste for cave-aged parmesan attracting the attention of the national media. Now, the Islington-based vixen is to be the subject of a series of children’s books aimed at bringing the life of the urban fox before younger readers. “Foxes have enchanted humans for centuries” says Zeb. “My experience with Gaspard has created connections with complete strangers around the world who are captivated by her. When she introduced me to her cubs it was a heart-stoppingly special moment. I hope this book series will help children better understand foxes and their fascinating lives.”
Graffeg believe this new series will help tell the story of how important our relationship with city wildlife and nature is and should delight young readers enormously. With Zeb’s writing and James’ illustrations, the books should capture the imagination of both children and adults alike. Our recent publication The Fox Book created such a great response that we are pleased to have this opportunity to further highlight the life of the urban fox.
