Lying in bed with the COVID-19 virus, Leicester author Joe Nixon felt inspired by a TV news story on wild animals venturing into towns and cities during the pandemic lockdown. Now, thanks to an arts publishing partner of Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust, The Fearless Fox & Daring Deer will be venturing into homes nationally to raise funds for the NHS.
The Fearless Fox & Daring Deer is to be published by WORD! a poetry organisation uniquely co-produced by an NHS Trust, and available via donation. Illustrated by Nottingham-based Ami-Lou Harrison, the rhyming picture book invites children to enjoy the adventures of woodland creatures as they play human games in an empty town.
The book is dedicated to NHS staff, carers and frontline workers, and all of those who have lost their lives during the COVID-19 pandemic and is available to download by donation at www.fearlessfox.co.uk
