My Fat Fox is a small indie publishing company based in London UK, and with roots in the US. We aim to make the work of new and talented authors and artists available to everyone. We are also committed to helping to protect the species we share this beautiful planet with, so we have decided to donate a proportion of the profits from the sale of some of our products to conservation groups.
A note on spelling: since we have roots in both the US and the UK some of our books use British English spelling and some use US spelling, depending on the preference of the author/artist.
Hedgehogs in the UK are under threat; it is thought that the population has declined by 25% over the past decade and fewer than a million remain.

Color and Save the Ocean
This colouring book includes twelve drawings of endangered ocean species to colour, and includes information about them and lists conservation groups that are working to prevent their extinction. Artist and author Karin Hoppe Holloway writes:
"The Ocean is the source and base of all life on our planet. There may be 50 million Ocean species. They depend on each other and we depend on them. Many of these Ocean species are endangered from our activities. Being endangered can be fixed if we work at it; extinction is final, there is no going back. I hope coloring these endangered Ocean animals will help you to care about them and to love them as I do."
One third of the profits from the sale of this book will go to the Eco-Ceto plastics recycling project.

Great colouring books, amazing illustrations, well worth the money (especially that they donate over 30% for ocean conservation groups). Your kids will love them!"
Endangered Lizards Colouring Book by Jay Manchand. The Galapagos Conservation Trust writes:
"This colouring book is a great way to raise awareness and funding for endangered lizards and to engage all ages in conservation. The drawings have a good amount of detail and the descriptions are informative. Jay Manchand has done an amazing job of combining the important and concerning issues that surround endangered lizards with the fun aspect of their textured and brightly coloured appearances. A fun way to learn and overall a very impressive idea and product."
Angel On Vacation
When 13-year-old Nicholai took a long train journey with his hypnotherapist mother, she asked him to relax and tell her about the pictures in his head, and recorded the results. What emerged in this and subsequent sessions was an extraordinarily coherent account of an angel taking a vacation on Earth as a human.
Either Nicholai has a very remarkable imagination, or this really is an account of a working angel's existence. Either way it is a very entertaining account; moving in parts, sometimes thought-provoking, often very funny.
Available as a 6"x9" paperback from Amazon UK, from Amazon US and other booksellers.
It is also available as a Kindle ebook from Amazon US or from Amazon UK.

We live in London, in the UK, and have become fascinated by and attached to our local urban foxes. When we first made their acquaintance they were scraggy, mangy, sorry-looking creatures. A few years of feeding them chicken scraps from our local butcher has left them bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.
Our business venture helps to keep us and our vulpine friends fat and happy.
