Summary

A moving story of the extraordinary friendship between a boy and his fox and their epic journey to be reunited.

Pax was only a kit when his family was killed, and he was rescued by 'his boy', Peter. Now the country is at war, and when Peter's father enlists, Peter has no choice but to move in with his grandfather.

Far worse than leaving home is the fact that he has to leave Pax behind. But before Peter spends even one night under his grandfather's roof he sneaks out into the night, determined to find his beloved friend. This is the story of Peter, Pax, and their journeys back to each other as war rampages throughout the country.

A profound and moving story, Pax is destined to become a classic in the vein of Charlotte's Web and Watership Down.

What an excellent story

This is truly a WEE gem of a tale. Motherlessness, fatherlessness, war, love, nature, all the great elements required, and written so compassionately, a wonderful tale.

Moving, determined, brilliant.

I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook which I had originally bought for my children. I realized a little way in it was a bit too old for them, but as I was enjoying it so much I decided to carry on listening.
I was not disappointed and I loved everything about it.
