Real foxes, the shy sort who peek out from the edges of fields and forests, don’t typically make quite the same stir as the famous Ylvis song they inspired. But they are beautiful, fascinating animals who’ve appeared in folklore and fables for centuries. In this list, I combine non-fiction with fiction to show the many creative ways we interpret these clever creatures.
