School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2

Told in the slightly anthropomorphized voice of a fox cub, this is the story of a friendship that develops across the often-gaping divide of nature and man. The cub's father takes his brood out to a railway station where the youngsters meet a kind man who brings them their "favorite things." One cold evening a pack of rowdy "man-cubs" attacks the animals with snowballs, and their provider is hurt in the scuffle. Later one of the boys comes back and the foxes must learn to trust the "wild" human. Scenes of rushing trains and graffiti are blended gently with the innocent fox pack. Neither nature nor man seems to intrude on the other's domain. Foreman accomplishes this by his soft touches: the warm glow of the streetlights and muted tones of the various structures. In the last moonlit picture where the cub and boy are together, calm reigns.-Carrie Rogers-Whitehead, Kearns Library, UT
