Every fox in the whole town, in the whole country just about, is a football fan...And we all have an impossible dream.

In a cosy den under a garden shed lives a family of foxes. They love to watch football - all foxes do. But their favourite team keeps losing and losing, and it seems like things will never look up.

That is, until Daddy Fox finds the ghost of a king, buried underneath a car park. A king who wishes only to be free.

"Release me," says the Ghost King, "and I can do anything. Just tell me your greatest wish."

For these football-loving foxes, might everything be about to change...?

A delightful tale of victory against all odds from master storyteller, Michael Morpurgo, lavishly illustrated by Michael Foreman.
