The Last Firefox – Lee Newbery ★★★★

Blurb; A heartwarming story about family, friendship and finding your inner fire.

Between bullies at school and changes at home, Charlie Challinor finds life a bit scary. And when he’s made guardian of a furry fox cub called Cadno, things get a whole lot scarier.

Because Cadno isn’t just any fox: he’s a firefox – the only one of his kind – and a sinister hunter from another world is on his trail.

Swept up into an unexpected adventure to protect his flammable friend, Charlie’s going to need to find the bravery he never thought he had, if he’s going to save the last firefox . . .

My Review; An easy read for me as it’s an older children’s story but one full of magic and adventure. Contains beautiful illustrations throughout. A brilliant story about another world beyond and a fire fox entering the real world to remain safe. But a fire fox is not easy to look after and remain hidden from your parents. This could be the only fire fox left in in world so needs to be saved.There is a great representation here for the gay community as the boy lives with his two fathers and is adopted. This fox finds itself in alot of bothered throughout this story and starting fires for fun. But can they remain hidden from the monster who wants to claim him? Fun read. Different. Full of imagination. I really enjoyed it. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me.
