The Fox Busters is a short novel by Dick King-Smith.

In his autobiography Chewing the Cud, Dick King-Smith wrote:

"In the summer holidays of 1976 [...] I wrote my very first attempt at a children's book. I'd had the ideas for it twenty years earlier in the middle of the farming era, when that passing fox had murdered a whole lot of my chickens. One day, I said to myself, I'll have a go at writing a story where the weak are victorious over the strong, where the chickens vanquish the foxes."[1]

The book was used as the basis for a British animated television program, The Foxbusters, in 1999.
