Willow’s dad tells strange stories about a hidden Forest where animals can speak, and about his childhood adventures with a pack of wolves. Then he disappears: stolen by foxes in the night.

To find him, Willow must enter the secret world of the Forest. There she must speak with wolves and find the magical Tower where the foxes are ruled by their silver-tongued leader, Reynard.

Reynard needs Willow’s help. But can she trust the story he is telling? Can Willow save her dad and find a way out of the Fox’s Tower?
