Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-- James Marshall presenting . . . Fox on Stage! This is truly Fox's favorite place--at the center of attention. But as usual, things don't turn out exactly as he hopes. First, he makes two videos to cheer up Grannie; one features Fox (of course!) but the other catches folks who don't want to be filmed. Next, after heckling a magician, he unwillingly becomes part of the show. The third episode finds Fox directing and starring in a play; nothing goes right, and the results are funny. Marshall helps new readers understand the text through his trademark pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations. Rollicking humor is missing in this ninth book about Fox, but the situations are funny and kids will identify with all of the episodes. In fact, they may be inspired to make a video, learn magic tricks, or put together a neighbor play . . . and who knows what the result will be. --Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Public Library, ID
