A previously unknown story by Beatrix Potter is to be published next week. Long neglected in a publisher’s archives, “The Tale Of Reynard The Fox” will arrive in bookshops and online very soon. The plot concerns a bloated, loathsome fox who makes a nuisance of himself with a number of young vixens. When the vixens complain, the matter is referred to the Wildlife Council, where the presiding officer, Judge Fudge, reaches an ambiguous conclusion which results in what Potter describes as ”an omnishambles”. The author’s publisher described the plot as “too far-fetched; totally unbelievable” and consigned the tale to the archives. “The Tale Of Reynard The Fox” is published by Hancock & Clegg at £2.99.
