Foxy Tales by Caryl Hart and Alex T. Smith


I’d seen lots of buzz around ‘Foxy Tales’ on social media sites, so when Caryl Hart was offering the opportunity to review her latest offering with Alex T.Smith, we’d have been fools not to bite her hand off, right?

You may or may not know, that I have a real bookworm here and as I suspected, she pounced on this book when she spotted it on the kitchen table. I didn’t get a look in!

Here, is her fabulous review, complete with her favourite bits and a picture from the book, by one of her illustrating heroes, Alex T. Smith.

She gave the book a 5 star rating and said she’D “love to read another story about Alphonso and Foxy”.

* 6yo apologises for calling Alphonso a crocodile, but in her defence she didn’t know how to spell ‘alligator’.

I finally got  my mitts on this hilarious, laugh-out-loud book and the 5 stars is definitely warranted. Thanks to Caryl Hart for the review copy and to Alex T. Smith for continuing to inspire the next generation of illustrators.
