A follow up to Egg, Alex T Smith has taken the well-loved theme of fox vs chicken again and embraced the absurd!

The dastardly duo from Egg returns in this delightfully silly tale. The utterly charming Foxy Dubois and Alphonso the Alligator put on their dancing shoes to commit the crime of the century! But when they hit the dance floor, things start to go terribly wrong...
