Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Quattlebaum
The young adolescent fox in the "Fox" series deals with a little sister, love, and a job. I especially enjoyed "Fox the Famous" in Fox be Nimble. In this story Fox, who would rather play at being a famous rock star, is 'talked into' babysitting for the neighborhood rascals. These rapscallions keep him hopping and bring him fame in a way he doesn't appreciate!
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-- Beginning readers are sure to delight in Marshall's sixth and newest book of Fox' ventures. In the first episode, Fox babysits for his rambunctious neighbors and ends up on the TV news. In the second chapter, he makes a big fuss over a small injury, but then learns how to be brave. Finally, Fox finds a place where he can show off all he wants--leading the band in the big parade. Marshall's wit is evidenced through the antics of all his zany characters. Without using difficult words, he extends new readers' understanding of the text through his bright, colorful, and very funny watercolors. As children read of the antics of Fox and his friends, they're sure to chuckle and laugh. Buy multiple copies of this hilarious winner by a master illustrator and author. --April L.
