Woodland Magic: Fox Cub Rescue by Julie Sykes & Katy Riddell

There were Keepers all around the world. The ones living in the Hidden Middle of the Whispering Woods had been there since the Stone Age. Keepers cared for the countryside, rewilding it by doing things that helped nature to recover when the Ruffins were careless with it.

Cora and Jax can’t believe it – it’s their first chance to go rewilding and care for the woodland. The Big Outside is overwhelming but so exciting! These big-hearted magical creatures become distracted exploring this new world and nearly make a huge mess of things. Do they actually have what it takes to be Nature Keepers? When a fox gets hurt on a pile of rubbish and needs their help, they rise to the challenge, learn some important lessons and prove that looking after nature is the most important thing.

This series is just right for young readers who are ready for longer novels and stories with more meaning. They will love the fun, relatable characters and cute animals. Messages of conservation and responsibility will inspire them to take care of their world.
