The Fox and The Hound
The Fox and The Hound, before you read let me tell you that this is not the Disney version but it is what the movie is derived from. In the Disney film, Tod and Copper are best friends but eventually realize they come from different worlds and go their separate ways. In the book, there is no such friendship. The author has done so much research into every aspect of the story, going so far as to live with a pair of foxes for over a year, and it really shows. Hats off to Mannix for making you feel so whole-heartedly for the character from both sides of the fence. Although the ending practically ripped my heart out of my chest and stomped it into the ground, I absolutely loved it. You are commenting using your WordPress.

As preparation for writing the novel, Mannix studied foxes, both tame and wild, a wide variety of hunting techniques, and the ways hounds appear to track foxes, seeking to ensure his characters acted realistically. It was well received by critics, who praised its detail and Mannix's writing style. Walt Disney Productions purchased the film rights for the novel when it won the Dutton award, though did not begin production on an adaptation until
