Join the noisy foxes as they learn about home and belonging in this funny tale.

Written and illustrated by Amy Husband, The Noisy Foxes follows a family of foxes who decide to move out of the big, noisy city to look for somewhere quieter to live … but nowhere seems quite right! Distinctive collage style illustrations add to the charm of this humorous ‘grass isn’t always greener’ tale.

Review 2020 red

The Noisy Foxes live in a very noisy city, under a railway bridge, and besides a very busy road. They also have noisy neighbours. One day they decide that they have had enough and that they would like somewhere quieter to live, so they set off for the countryside.

However, the foxes soon learn that living where it is very quiet might not be what they were looking for after all.

This is a fun young children’s picture book about believing that because something is different and the opposite of what you have now is better than what you currently have, it is the perfect example of ‘the grass isn’t always greener’.

It was wonderful for the foxes to meet up with other woodland creatures and for them to show them where they live. It was also lovely to see the foxes realise that there really is ‘no place like home’.

The illustrations are full-page, very bright, and bring the story to life. The book would make a fantastic read both at home or as a class read. It is short, doesn’t contain much text but has a powerful message.
