Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Several aspects of this beautiful member of the dog family are covered in this fun to read book. Readers will discover facts about what foxes eat—to what eats them—and a few things in between the cycle. The different types of foxes and their habitats are also shown throughout in photography that complements the text. Red, gray, fennec, and arctic foxes are portrayed in clear, high-quality photos. And children will also learn about the interrelationship of foxes with people, for while foxes eat small livestock, they also effectively control the rodent population by eating them as well. One reason foxes are so good at hunting is their sense of smell. A "Hands On" section at the end of this book provides a sweet example of how strong foxes' sense of smell are compared to ours. By putting layers of whipped cream over ground cinnamon, children can see how hard it is to smell the cinnamon once the cream is a couple of inches thick, whereas on a parallel level, foxes can smell mice through five inches of snow. A short list of relevant Internet sites, reference books, and an index is included. This title is part of "The Wild World of Animals" series. 2002, Capstone Press,
