Freddy Fox (ISBN 0-9754701-0-8) is a hardcover picture book written and illustrated by Ronald J. Meyer. It tells the story of a young fox and his family, following the daily activities of the fox kit, Freddy. Freddy Fox teaches the reader about red foxes, including that they are born shades of gray, how their den is built, what they eat, and family size. Then through a simple segue, Freddy's red fox mother teaches the young fox about other animals and traits attributed to them. By learning his lessons, Freddy will grow up to be a wise fox. All of the lessons, such as the bear eats a balanced diet or the raccoon washes his hands before eating, can easily be translated into lessons for young children.

The book was first published in 2004. It won the Silver Mom's Choice Award in the "Animal Kingdom" category in 2008.[1]

The author is a wildlife photographer, and he used his wildlife photographs to illustrate the book.
