Children of the Fox Summary

Children of the Fox is a collection of three novellas about children who live in ancient Greece. The central characters described in Children of the Fox are wholly fictitious, but the story of Themistokles, the Athenian general known as the Fox, is factual. Thus these tales offer historical insight into what it was like to live in ancient Greece or Asia Minor and to be caught up in the events of war and political intrigue. The three heroes are quite ordinary children of their time, unlikely candidates for great adventure, but their first-person narration of each tale brings an immediacy and excitement to the stories.
