About the book:
Fox kit O-370 hungers for a life of adventure, like those lived long ago by Mia and Uly. But on the Farm, foxes know only the safety of their wire dens and the promise of eternal happiness in the White Barn. Or so they’re told. When O-370 gets free of his cage, he witnesses the gruesome reality awaiting all the Farm’s foxes and narrowly escapes with his life.

In a nearby suburb, young Cozy and her skulk are facing an unknown danger, one that hunts foxes. Forced to flee their den, they travel to a terrifying new world: the City. That’s where they encounter O-370, and where they’ll need to fight for their lives against mad hounds, killer robots, and the most dangerous of all creatures: humans.

Reminder! Masks are required! Our mask requirement remains in effect at this time, for the safety and comfort of all of our visitors. Please note that we are maintaining a no-exceptions mask policy and other safety protocols. We are mindful of those who are not fully vaccinated, those who cannot be vaccinated due to age or health conditions, those who are immunocompromised, and those who have vulnerable individuals in their homes and families. For the time being, a mask requirement is how we keep The King’s English Bookshop a welcoming, safe space for everyone in our community. 

So don’t forget your mask, regardless of your vaccination status, and thanks for your cooperation! (If you don't have a mask when you visit, we can provide a one-time use mask for you at the door.)
