There are four books to have a look at

The Expensive Cravat is a 68,000 word comic novel that was triggered by my accidental exposure to the English
Middle Class and their silly ways... You can read an extract from Chapter 1 - Sitting up here.

creatures Foxes.No human, no matter how
sly, could have got away unnoticed like that and in the peace of early morning,
Joe speculated what possible motive the Fox could have had for doing such a

released seemed excessive and after some idle thought, Joe concluded the Fox
probably did it for his own amusement.
