Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Fox encounters numerous snags in his attempts at gainful employment; PW enjoyed the ``zingy and sly'' drawings of this ``fast-paced and funny Easy-to-Read.'' Ages 4-8. (Apr.)
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3 Marshall's Fox is at it again in his sixth bookthis time wrecking his bike while showing off. Reality sets in when Fox' mother refuses to buy him a new one. With the stage set, beginning readers settle in to enjoy Fox' humorous misadventures as he tries to earn money for a new bike. This book is populated with Marshall's typically amusing animal characters. The watercolor illustrations aid readers in understanding Fox' business attemptsselling ``little'' shoes to a kangaroo with enormous feet, being afraid of a dark haunted house where he sells tickets, and delivering mice instead of pizza. What does Fox do best? He makes reading fun and makes money while sleeping! Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Public Library, Idaho
