About the book
A young white fox called Dilah returns home to find his mother gravely injured.
Before she dies, she tells him about a treasure with the power to make animals human. The clues to its location are contained in a moonstone buried beneath their den.

Along the way, he befriends all sorts of other creatures: a friendly seal, an ancient tortoise and a fierce leopard – but can he stay one step ahead of his enemies?
