Cinnabar the One O'Clock Fox

by Marguerite Henry

"Tally-ho!" It was George Washington himself who sighted the flying form of the One O'Clock Fox. And "Gone away!" the Huntsman's horn sounded, as with a jaunty flick of his brush Cinnabar dared the hounds to catch him. Boys and girls who have loved Misty, King of the Wind, and Brighty will find in the gay and dauntless Cinnabar another unforgettable character brought glowingly to life by the magical touch of Marguerite Henry and Wesley Dennis. For this extraordinary fox, so legend says, loved the excitement of the chase so much that on foxhunting days he would show himself promptly at the hour of one to lead the hunt a fast and thrilling race through the woods and fields of Mount Vernon. To George Washington and the other gentlemen of Virginia he was known affectionately as "the One O'Clock Fox." But the hunters saw only one side of Cinnabar. It has remained for Marguerite Henry and Wesley Dennis to tell in merry and fascinating detail the story of Cinnabar's home life as well-of his wife Vicky, who played the flute; of the four mischievous cubs, Rascal, Pascal, Merry, and Mischief; of their cozy den with the hourglass on the mantel; of Cinnabar's prowess as a hunter. And especially this book tells of one grand hunt in which Cinnabar risked his life and lost a toe-but triumphed anyway!
