Synopsis

 

Flightless, helpless and often, frankly, more than a little silly, chickens are no match for the cunning, merciless foxes stalking their coop. Or are they? Thanks to a careless farmer and generations of determined foxes, the chickens on Foxearth Farm have evolved into quick-witted, long-legged, high flying fox dodgers. Then, just a week after a vicious fox ambush in the water trough, three sisters are hatched. And Ransome, Sims and Jefferies are no ordinary chicks: they grow up determined to fight back. They are the legendary Fox Busters  

 

This copy has some shelf wear and a small bump on the bottom of the back board, the pages have some discolouration due to age and some of the corners have been folded down by the previous owner. The dust jacket has some creasing and fading on the edges and a tear about 2cm long in the top left hand corner.
