A lonely little fox masters the fine art of making friends--in a way he never imagined. The wonderfully original story, and its spectacular illustrations, will touch young children just beginning to understand the meaning of friendship themselves. In his first picture book, Adam Relf shows his truly remarkable talent.
Poor little Fox! He's all alone in his room, with no friends at all. So when Mama suggests that he make some, Fox sets out to do that...literally. "What can I make a friend out of?" he wonders. Soon, he's gathered all the materials he things he needs--sticks, stones, fruit, and more--and built his first friend. "Are you my friend?" Fox asks. "Can you come and play?" But it doesn't reply and it doesn't move. What could be wrong? Only when a variety of curious animals come round to help that Fox discovers what pals are all about.
Adam Relf's moving tale of his friendship, and his imaginative artwork--featuring some of the most adorable animals ever--make this picture book a very special treat for children.

The large illustrations are perfect for group viewing and the lesson, that making friends, is important, is good for preschoolers.
This story about a little fox trying to 'make' friends couldn't be more adorable! The baby fox is lonely and wants a friend, so he tells his mother he's going to go catch one. She explains that you don't catch friends, you make friends. After hearing that, the little fox gathers various building materials (apples, sticks, nuts turnips, etc.) so he can 'make' a friend. Along the way he meets a rabbit and a squirrel who help him 'make' his friends. The artificial friends don't talk back or play, so fox,rabbit and squirrel think they have failed. But then fox realizes he's been making friends all along with the rabbit and squirrel. The illustrations are fabulous and the story reads well. I bought a copy for my daughter (2 months), my neices (19 months, and 7 years) and my friend's 2 year old. This book is a must have!
