Publisher's Summary

A delightful tale of victory against all odds from master storyteller Michael Morpurgo.
'Every fox in the whole town, in the whole country just about, is a football fan....and we all have an impossible dream.'
In a cosy den under a garden shed lives a family of foxes. They love to watch football - all foxes do. But their favourite team keeps losing and losing, and it seems like things will never look up. That is until Daddy Fox finds the ghost of a king buried underneath a car park. A king who wishes only to be free.
'Release me,' says the Ghost King, 'and I can do anything. Just tell me your greatest wish.'
For these football-loving foxes, might everything be about to change?
