When Foxy DuBois and Alphonso the Alligator "find" some money, they are thrown into jail. Luckily Eric-the-Evil has a plan to help them escape. But will it work or will they land up in even more trouble?

With nods to all the great prison break classic movies, this book is packed with hairbrained schemes, sewage and disappearing chickens.

Look Inside!

For Foxy Tales - The Road to Fame and Fortune
Manchester Evening News - Children's Book of the Week 1 July 2014
Smith has come up trumps again with the creation of Foxy and Alphonso, while Hart's story is fast-paced and easy to read. There's a laugh on every page and it is ideal for younger readers who want to move to longer stories without getting bogged down in chapters. Children will undoubtedly adore the sheer daftness of the story as well as the inevitable wind and warty bottom jokes.

The Independent on Sunday
Ingenious black and white illustrations provided by Alex T Smith... a lot of fun.

Read it Daddy!
Snortingly funny and a great example of a transitional book for kids like Charlotte looking for something a bit longer than the norm, but not as wordy as a chapter reader. Once again, Foxy and Alphonso are a huge hit and we'll be looking forward to that third book!

I liked all the failed attempts at getting out of prison they were very funny. There are lots of pictures and I can really recommend the other two in the series.
