Famous People’s Foxes

The fantastic Quentin Blake gives us a jaunty chap with a sackful of poultry and a triumphant glint in his eye. He is obviously on his way back home to his family after a visit to the sheds of those ghastly farmers Boggis, Bunce and Bean, as featured in Quentin’s illustrations to Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr Fox.


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.

    Quentin Blake’s drawings are terrific: there is a whole wall of them along a corridor in Addenbrooke’s Hospital and whenever I’m at the hospital I love to look at his drawings.
