9780141302515: The Fox Busters

The Foxearth fowls have a tradition of battling with the crafty foxes whose cunning is hard to outwit. Then the bold rooster fathers three exceptional chicks - Ransome, Sims and Jeffries - who fly faster, higher and further than any chicken has ever done before. They are the Fox Busters.
