The multi-award-winning ‘Run With the Wind’ series 

‘Don’t forget’, said the old fox, ‘if danger threatens, run with the wind …’

In the Land of Sinna, Black Tip, Vickey, Old Sage Brush, Fang, Hop-along and the rest of the foxes living around Beech Paw are in trouble. They are being hunted, trapped and harried and have no choice but to set out in search of the secret of survival.

As they journey through countryside and city, facing many dangers along the way, they find new friendships and rediscover what it means to be ‘as cunning as a fox’.
