The Woods is a cat-and-mouse (or fox-and-rabbit) story with a not-so-fluffy twist from the author of The Cave.
Here are the woods. The woods are home to three foxes on a hunt for rabbits. Three foxes that don't realise someone might be following them… From the author of The Cave, this is a fantastically funny cat-and-mouse (or fox-and-rabbit) story with a not-so-fluffy twist. The foxes follow some helpful signs over the tallest trees, under the carrot fields and through the pumpkin patch, but there's no sign of any rabbits. What on earth has happened to them? And why are there strange eyes following them from the trees? Children will love outwitting the foxes - who continually say, No rabbits here - by spotting the rabbits in each colourful illustration.
