Kym woke up the morning after the unexpected death of her family’s beloved cat, Little Fox, with a story weaving its way through her head and her heart.  So inspired, she wrote it down immediately.  Her first book, Little Fox and the Red Balloon, is that story, and is the first in a series of tales celebrating the spirit of Little Fox.

Little Fox is the mischievous, energetic, and much loved cat of Mama and Papa.  He’s had a few families but this one is his favourite, and he loves nothing more than frolicking in their large garden, pouncing on the unsuspecting Papa, and running up his favourite tree to sit up high and watch the world below.  Then one day a curious red balloon arrives and changes everything.

Little Fox is a story inspired by real-life events and a very special cat, Manfred aka Puma aka Little Fox.  Sadly Little Fox died suddenly, and his spirit is symbolised in the story by the red balloon.  Little Fox left a big hole in the hearts and lives of his owners, Kym and Jeff, and is sure to find a place in yours through the adventures he’ll be embarking on in this story, and many to come.
