    'The wolves howled, far behind, but it was not a song for her.
    Night-smells of the Forest stirred.
    Ferns were curling, wildflowers closing, sap 
    retreating.
    She went further in.’

    From the award-winning author of Wolfstongue

    Willow’s dad has disappeared: stolen by foxes in the night. To find him, Willow must enter the secret world of the Forest. There she will speak with wolves and find the magical Tower where the foxes are ruled by their silver-tongued leader, Reynard.

    In the Tower, Willow sees wonders: statues walking the streets, spires reaching to the stars, and a lion who wants to be king. But disaster is near. The magic is running out and soon the Tower will fall.

    Reynard has a plan that will change everything, and he needs Willow’s help. But can she trust the story he is telling? Can Willow save her dad and find a way out of the Fox’s Tower?

    'A captivating, thought-provoking and fable-like tale … a triumphant follow-up to Wolfstongue.”  –  Eve McDonnell, author of The Chestnut Roaster

    'Startlingly original. Sam Thompson is a visionary genius.'  –  Piers Torday, author of The Last Wild trilogy

    'From the first page of The Fox's Tower I was caught up in the adventure. Nail-bitingly tense, funny, furious and full of heartfelt emotion this book will pitch you headfirst into another, incredibly captivating world and make you look at your own human world through fresh eyes.' –  Jan Carson, author of The Raptures

    'A loose sequel to Wolfstongue, Thomspon has created characters from the animal kingdom whose desires have a fabular quality, with important lessons about power and corruption that translate to the world of humankind.' – Sara Keating, The Irish Times

    'The mystery and fantasy elements of The Fox’s Tower make it a captivating read for children while its hidden depths entice older readers at once.' – The National

    'Lyrical, vibrant, thought-provoking, brave…a tale of family, loyalty, courage and hope. A most fitting follow-up to Wolfstongue, this takes the story to a different level.'  – Fallen Star Stories

    'I was gasping and laughing as I read. (I may also have been crying a little.)'  Read and Reviewed

    'The author of Wolfstongue has created a magical successor.' – Absolutely Education

    '8/10. It's exciting, and it all leads up to one thing, which I like.'  – Lidia's Booktastic podcast

    'An incredibly powerful story on so many levels.' – The Kids Book Curartor
