The first book in the Foxcraft series. the second is "The Elders" and the third is "The Mage".
Before I read this my favorite animal was a kinkajou and now it is the fox! Isla is a red fox because she has black legs. Like this comment if you love foxes too.

Isla and her brother, Pirie, are two young fox cubs living in the Great Snarl (the city).
One day, while her Ma, Fa, Greatma, and brother are out hunting, Isla gets lost and when she finally finds her den again she finds it deserted and burned down, covered in the scents of strange, hostile foxes.
Shortly after this tragedy, Isla meets a red fox named Siffrin who is able to shape-shift, turn invisible, and mimic other animals - he calls these magic abilities "foxcraft", and begins to teach Isla the secrets of foxcraft.
Soon, Isla and Siffrin embark on an adventure to find Pirie, Isla's lost brother,
