Famous People’s Foxes

How clever of children’s author Alan Garner to create such a perfectly supercilious-looking fox with just a few strokes of his pen. Those A-shaped eyebrows convey total disdain as Mr Fox looks down the single stroke of his nose. After years of going through dustbins he has no doubt acquired a low opinion of man. Or perhaps he is simply passing judgement on someone’s efforts at recycling.

About Slightly Famous People’s Foxes

In 2014 we wanted to celebrate our tenth anniversary in a way which might help a good cause. The result was a little book, Slightly Famous People’s Foxes, an original gallery of vulpine characters you’d be astonished to find poking around your dustbins, all kindly donated by friends of Slightly Foxed and brought to order by Oliver Pritchett, well known for his witty columns in the Sunday Telegraph.

All profits from the sale of the book (approximately £5,000) were donated to the Children’s Hospital School at Great Ormond Street which allows children to continue their education while they are there. To raise more money for the school the original fox drawings were auctioned in April 2015.
