Gerald is shunned by his fellow foxes because of his ragged and mangy coat. When one of the lazier elders in his tribe professes a distaste for rabbit, Gerald uses his cunning to take his revenge and teach the Wilderwood foxes a lesson in responsibility.
Gerald the Mangy Fox is a very good read and I did enjoy the short story. I did feel, however, that the story structure was more aimed at a younger audience whilst the writing and dialogue was aimed at an older audience. This slight disparity means that whilst the book is good, there is a feeling that it doesn't know what it wants to be. I did enjoy the story, but I feel it would work better if it was aimed either at a younger audience, which would fit the length of the text or expanded and aimed at older readers.
Worth a read, even though I wish the illustrations had been available
