The Fox on the Swing

We rated this book:


If you read my review of Soda Pop, you know I’m not scared of crazy stories, but this one is pretty out there! You will find yourself in a word where elephants ride in taxis, a boy befriends a fox that swings in the local park, the family lives in a tree house, and the mom only paints orange pottery. (And Dad has his own helicopter and landing pad!)

The fox is clearly supposed to be wise and clever and has a lot of one-liners like, “Being generous is like an ocean, would you like to be a drop in that ocean?” or “When I need to be somewhere else, that is where I’ll go,” but I think those messages might be missed by younger readers. They might not mind, however, as the story is entertaining!

It’s a beautiful book, and there is a lot to look at on each page. I would definitely choose it off the shelf with the intriguing picture of the fox on the swing and silvery stars on the cover. I loved the final picture and words: “But most of all, happiness is a fox.” You’ll just have to check it out to see what you think!
