The Fox on the Swing
A charming, quirky story about friendship, dreams and happiness. For ages 5+
Once upon a time, there was a boy named Paul.
Wait, that’s not quite right.
This story begins in a different way...
Paul was just an ordinary boy living in a big city, until the day that he met a fox on a swing. And when a fox comes into your life, anything can happen! The Fox on the Swing is a delightful story about best friends, big dreams and what happiness really means.
