In 2006, photographer Martin Usborne spent three days walking around London in the company of a fox, a dead fox, hired from a taxidermist at a rate higher than it would cost to rent a Ferrari. It was money well spent. Usborne had great fun interacting with people on the street and the fox, temporarily at least, was given a new lease of life. Follow this Fantastic Mr Fox, a delightful addition to our One Picture Book series, as he visits a grocery store, joins the queue at an ATM and - of course! - drops in at a good old British pub. Truly, this is one urbane fox.
