KIRKUS REVIEW

Earlier this season, Paula Fox offered a dog writing to a former master (Dear Prosper -- p. -141): David Ross presents a fox's letters to an uncle recounting his family's relocation to Hampstead Heath and the subsequent indoctrination to city life. Wife Vixy busies herself around the house (in Reynard Castle, the ancestral home) while pups Quicker (than the others), Barker, Jumper and Little Nothing (Little Tod, after a brave uncle when he wises up) investigate N.W. J. Foxy shares the seasonal changes and family exchanges, narrow escapes and wide ramblings with notable powers of recall. Light and airy, and literate on the sly.
