Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-- Fox is lightning quick and mighty clever at attempting to make things turn out in his favor. Here he is foiled three times when his attempts to come out on top backfire, and he's never been funnier. There will be no sympathy for him when he tries to win a race illegally; when he's wooed into giving away his ten best comics; and when he is tricked into believing in Halloween magic. With its straightforward plot and dialogue, Marshall's text is just right for new readers. Most of the humor comes from the delightful pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations--great facial expressions (appearing so simply created with lines and dots) and often funny poses of characters. Fox (is) Outfoxed again, and beginning readers are the big winners. --Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Public Library, ID
