About this title


Tom hates having to spend the summer on a farm . . . until he discovers the midnight fox.<br /><br /> No one asked Tom how <i>he </i>felt about spending two months on his Aunt Millie&#x2019;s farm. For a city boy, the farm holds countless terrors&#x2014;stampeding baby lambs, boy-chasing chickens, and worst of all, loneliness. But everything changes when Tom sees the midnight fox. He can spend hours watching the graceful black fox in the woods. And when her life&#x2014;and that of her cub&#x2014;is in danger, Tom knows exactly what he must do.<br /><br /> &#x201c;An exceptional book.&#x201d;&#x2014;<i>Booklist <br /></i><br /> A Library of Congress Children&#x2019;s Book of the Year
