Can you write the story from fox’s point of view?

Think about the following things:

  • How did the fox get stuck in the first place?
  • What did he think when the boy found him?
  • Did he want the boy to chase him?
  • How did he disappear at the end of the clip?
  • Write in the 1st person

Try to include:

  • A verb or adverb to start your sentence (bounding across the grass)
  • Use short, snappy sentences
  • Tell the reader when something happened (moments later)
  • Expanded nouns phrases (trembling, terrified fox)
  • Interesting vocabulary choices (leaping instead of ran, seized instead of grabbed)
