    The Foxman is a very good book that would be for someone who enj

    The Foxman is a very good book that would be for someone who enjoys a relaxing, outdoorsy book. Someone who is a farmer or a hunter/ trapper would most likely enjoy this book. The main character is based on Gary Paulsen. He is a 15 year old who is abused by his parents. They are abusive because they drink a lot. Since they are abusive he is sent to his Uncle Harolds. Him and his cousin Carl become pretty close. Carl helps him do things and explains how to do them. For example, when he needed snowshoes Carl told and showed hin how to make them. The setting takes place on an old farm. If they want or need something they must make it or hunt for it. One day when the two boys were chasing after a fox they went to far up north and were lost with a snow storm coming. They discovered an old shack with smoke coming out the chimney. There was an elderly guy named the Foxman who was wounded from war that lived there. He was sorry for the lonley old man and kept going to visit him. They became real close and he went up there multiple times.Then the unthinkable happened

    Foxman

    It was boring in the bigginging when the boy goes and lives with his uncle and aunt. He meets an old man and they become friends. Wait to the end you'll be happy you did.

    The Foxman

    The book The Foxman is a very enjoyable book for kids 10-13. It is about a boy who comes to live at his aunt and uncles farm in Minnisota. He forms a relationship with an old man whos face was mangled in a war. It has a very good ending so just stick it out for a while.
