Publisher's Summary

Christian McKay Heidicker draws inspiration from Bram Stoker, H. P. Lovecraft, and Edgar Allan Poe for his debut middle-grade novel, a thrilling portrait of survival and an unforgettable tale of friendship.  

"Clever and harrowing." (The Wall Street Journal)  

"Into the finest tradition of storytelling steps Christian McKay Heidicker with these highly original, bone-chilling, and ultimately heart-warming stories. All thats needed is a blazing campfire and a delicious plate of peaches and centipedes." (Kathi Appelt, Newbery Award honoree and National Book Award finalist)  

The haunted season has arrived in the Antler Wood. No fox kit is safe.  

When Mia and Uly are separated from their litters, they discover a dangerous world full of monsters. In order to find a den to call home, they must venture through field and forest, facing unspeakable things that dwell in the darkness: a zombie who hungers for their flesh, a witch who tries to steal their skins, a ghost who hunts them through the snow...and other things too scary to mention.  

Featuring eight interconnected stories, Scary Stories for Young Foxes contains the kinds of adventures and thrills you love to listen to beside a campfire in the dark of night. 

Fans of Neil Gaiman, Jonathan Auxier, and R. L. Stine have found their next favorite book.

Haven’t even finished and love it!

Great book! Before I had the sample, I thought it was just scary story’s, but it’s much much more and even has some lore mixed in it! So far I’ve loved it and can’t even imagine how good the rest will be. Okay well if it’s a little weird or weird then it’s not the only time that we are in and it will not have been so bad but we will do that too if it’s ok if I do not know if it was ok if you were just to go out there again or do something weird like it was weird or scary or bad and weird and then we have no clue what’s wrong but I’m sorry but it’s not that too weird I can’t even say anything about that person you’re not a good bad word but I can’t even

Great from start to finish. My kids ate it up.

My girls and I have heard it 3 times "cover to cover". We are definitely checking out the sequel.

Wonderful for all ages

I love foxes. Always have since I was young. I've never heard of this book until I saw it on audible.

It did not disappoint.

The characters are lovable and the story is enthralling. I can't wait to listen to the next one! Animal lovers will enjoy this immensely.

Creepy and emotional

I really loooved this book, can't wait to listen to the next one of the series (the city). I couldn't put it down and go to sleep, I had to listen to one chapter after another!... Creepy but also heart warming. Warning/spoiler, some descriptions of events could be a wee bit too graphic for animal lovers. I also liked the narrator very much, although at some point some gulping like sounds were distracting, at least for me. Luckily they stopped at a point and I really enjoyed the narrative.
