When Peter Maceever spots Ferdinand Fox sleeping in his garden he tiptoes out to take a photo. At the click of the camera Ferdinand briefly stirs as his dreamy blancmange goes blurred. But he is far too lazy to move and is soon back asleep, dreaming about cake and ice cream! The first of six delightful rhyming stories about Ferdinand, a kind-hearted urban fox. Read aloud to 3-6 year-olds or for confident readers and adults to enjoy themselves! Look out for more Ferdinand Fox stories in 2013!

This is a lovely book to share at bedtime with your child, it is a great rhyming story with bright and colourful illustrations. My son really enjoyed it and we have read it together a number of times already, I think he wishes his dreams were as good as the fox's in the story!   I haven't tried it but there is also an app on iTunes that goes with this book.

I read this book to my (then) 5 year old, many times. 
He always enjoyed both the paperback version and the app version on iTunes.

This is rather an unusual book. It feels a little big old-fashioned (talk of cream buns and the language in general). One sticking point for us is that when the fox is sleeping Peter wonders if it is dead. I didn't really want to talk to my little one about what that meant so we skipped over that part. We didn't find it particularly engaging and have not gone back to it since we first read it some time ago. At the moment my daughter really likes stories with a little more action.
