Miss Fox

Miss Fox, a charming supply teacher at a village school, couldn't POSSIBLY be anything but a sweet and delightful teacher - or could she?

This jolly tale of a teacher with a rather nefarious agenda, and her pupils including a rebellious young lamb, is excellent reading. Throughout the story, you're never quite sure if Miss Fox is all she pretends to be and though you can pretty much guess what happens when a fox is put in charge of a bunch of tender, delightful, cake-fed little animals, there's still plenty in this book to get your foxy fangs into.
