Greetings from Hoxton Square where a rootle through the stock and stationery cupboards in search of more wrapping paper has revealed that we are down to our last 20 sets of Ronald Welch’s gripping historical adventure novels for children. And so, herewith, a hastily thrown-together email from the bookish elves here at Foxed HQ to let you know that if you’ve been thinking of investing in a set as a present for a young-at-heart reader, with stocks dwindling and the last recommended posting dates for Christmas fast approaching, now would be a good moment to do so.
Slightly Foxed Cubs is a series of beautifully produced collectable children’s books, which strike a nostalgic chord with many older readers and introduce a younger generation to writers whose marvellous books have, unaccountably, been allowed to slip out of print. In addition to Ronald Welch we have also published Rosemary Sutcliff’s series of Roman and post-Roman novels and three of BB’s classic nature novels. Bound in coloured cloth, with printed endpapers and original illustrations, the Cubs make ideal presents.
Each of the books in our Slightly Foxed Cubs series makes excellent stand-alone reading so, if you’d like to try one or two instead of a set, you’ll also find listings for those titles which are still available to buy individually on our website. Please see below for more information about each series, and follow the links to browse and buy online.
With best wishes, as ever, from the SF office staff
Jess, Isabel, Rebecca & India
