The Story of A Red FoxBook - 2004
Amber, the youngest and smallest kit in her litter, from birth through maturity. The animals are all named and have emotions and thoughts, but the facts are realistically portrayed as the kits develop physically and behaviorally. Amber and her brothers play, explore, and wander farther from their den until, at six months, they leave the family group. Amber quickly encounters dangers from other wild animals as well as from humans and their dogs. She meets a young male fox, Flame, and enjoys playing and hunting with him, but they are separated during a frightening encounter with hunters. She survives her first year (unlike some of her brothers) and is reunited with Flame.
