The book contains three stories: ‘A Fox Called Fintan’, ‘The Song Thrush who couldn’t sing’, and ‘Chasing Dragons’. It also includes a short fact-file about foxes, song thrushes, and ladybirds.
‘A Fox Called Fintan’: Fintan was so small that all the other cubs treated him like a toy to be played with. Their favourite game was Chase, and Fintan was always the one being chased. But when Fintan manages to outwit Robinson, the cleverest rat in the city, he shows everyone that brains are more important than brawn.
‘The Song Thrush Who Couldn’t Sing’: Song thrushes, as the name suggests, are wonderful singers, and males rely on their singing ability to attract a mate. Nobody expected Tara, the most beautiful thrush in the hedge, to choose a mate who couldn’t sing. But Tara saw something different in an out-of-tune Terrence…
‘Chasing Dragons’: Like all ladybirds, Larry loved a good adventure, and when he overheard a conversation between a grasshopper and a caterpillar, he suddenly found himself on a quest for a dragon. But was the grasshopper exaggerating, as grasshoppers are known to do? Would he find a dragon, or a valuable lesson along the way?
