ABOUT THE BOOK
Scary Stories for Young Foxes
“Clever and harrowing.” —The Wall Street Journal
“Into the finest tradition of storytelling steps Christian McKay Heidicker with these highly original, bone-chilling, and ultimately heart-warming stories. All that’s needed is a blazing campfire and a delicious plate of peaches and centipedes.” —Kathi Appelt, Newbery Award honoree and National Book Award finalist
The haunted season has arrived in the Antler Wood.
No fox kit is safe.
When Mia and Uly are separated from their litters, they stumble into a dangerous world full of monsters. In order to find a den to call home, they must venture through field, swamp, and forest, facing unspeakable things that dwell in the darkness: a zombie who hungers for their flesh, a witch who tries to steal their skins, a ghost who hunts them through the snow, and other things too scary to mention here.
Featuring eight interconnected stories and sixteen hauntingly beautiful illustrations, Scary Stories for Young Foxes contains all the adventure and thrills you’ll love to listen to beside a campfire or when the moon is bright.
Fans of Neil Gaiman, Jonathan Auxier, and R. L. Stine have found their next favorite book.
