    Have you ever had a wish come true? Have you ever held the hand of a kid smaller than you? Have you ever found something you didn't believe in? Have you ever talked to a fox? This charming story follows two children who go looking for their jump rope and discover that a group of foxes have claimed it as an answer to their wish. With beautiful illustrations and a lyrical text, this subtle, sensitive piece of magic, proves to little sister, little brother, and reader alike find that the trusted familiar often lives right next to the truly extraordinary--if only you have the eyes to see it.

    Gleebooks review:
    A little girl realises she left her skipping rope in the park and returns there with her little brother to retrieve it. In the clearing she finds a troupe of little foxes trying to jump rope, unsuccessfully, as their tails keep getting in the way. Wonderfully evocative illustrations done in gouache, biro and oil pencil, and mainly in shades of leafy greens with pale yellows, help to tell this gentle story; in fact the foxes are the same colours as the children, surely no accident. This book is playful and funny, with a marvellous ending, a great book for small children. Louise
