Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kirsten Shaw
Rabbit breathes a sigh of relief as he safely barricades himself in his home after being chased by a fox through the dark forest. When he hears a knock at the door he is sure it's the sneaky fox, but soon learns that it is his friend Duck who is also seeking a safe hiding place from the fox. Mouse and Lamb are soon to follow and they all huddle together in the darkness when the real culprit appears—a baby fox who has lost his mother. The group of friends overcomes their fears to help the tiny fox find his mother and learn a valuable lesson about judging others before they get to know them. Children will enjoy listening to Green's fun rhymes, and the story provides a perfect bedtime read as the ending winds down and all of the animals snuggle together to sleep for the night. Allwright's illustrations compliment the tale perfectly and children will love to look at the pictures again and again as she humorously captures the emotions of each of the animals. Reviewer: Kirsten Shaw
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2—A hungry fox is hunting for a meal. Rabbit senses his presence and scampers home as fast as he can. Slamming the door behind him, he takes a moment to breathe when a dreaded knock comes at the door. Could it be the fox, boldly coming after his dinner? No, it is Duck, who is also seeking shelter. Though Rabbit is reluctant to share his bed, he welcomes him in. Soon Mouse and Lamb join the two, and the entire troop is squashed in the too-small bed. When another knock comes, Duck throws open the door without a thought to find Fox Cub on the doorstep. The mortified animals are relieved to discover he is in need of comfort and a bed as he has lost his mother. Not far behind is toothsome Mother Fox, who is so relieved to find her baby safe that she offers her soft, furry body as a cozy bed for the entire gang. Allwright's warm and comforting mixed-media illustrations are full of soft lines and earth tones, which balance the threat felt by the animals and make Rabbit's home a safe haven. Young children will squeal every time they hear the knock at the door, but will be relieved by the gentle ending.—Heather Acerro, Allen County Public Library, Fort Wayne, IN
Kirkus Reviews

Fear of the fox makes strange bedfellows. Under the light of a full moon, Rabbit runs for his life, pursued by a fox. He reaches home just in time. A rat-a-tat-tat at the door sends Rabbit's ears straight up. It's not Fox, but a Duck, like Rabbit seeking safety. Rabbit reluctantly agrees to share his bed with Duck, but no sooner has the pair settled in than there's another rat-a-tat-tat. A tired mouse seeks shelter, then a little lamb. The bed is getting comically crowded. Another knock: It's "A Fox in the Dark!" But--it's just a small, scared fox looking for his mother. Young readers should be able to guess who knocks on the door next. In the end, big mommy Fox provides a snug sleeping place for all the other animals. Green's text is written in a gentle rhyme, and Allwright makes all the animals adorable. She varies her compositions inventively, incorporating some graphic-style storytelling and capitalizing on the contrast between Rabbit's lantern light and the surrounding shadows. Just right for a bedtime story. (Picture book. 3-6)

    Quite possibly loveliest children's book ever!

    This is a truly delightful story of Rabbit, Duck, Mouse, Lamb all frightened of a fox in the dark... but sometimes things don't turn out how you'd expect.
    The first time I read this it brought tears to my eyes and often still has the same effect. And the appeal isn't just for me, my 5 and 4 year old children love it too.
    It has fabulous illustrations, a beautiful lilting poetic rhythm and I will never get bored of this book. You have to read it!
