Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy DaPolito
This adaptation of an Inuit folk tale presents Fox's story in an innovative format. Each set of facing pages contains text for a parent to read to a kindergarten to first-grade child on the left-hand page and briefer, simpler text for the child to read to the parent on the right-hand page. Lively and colorful pictures illustrate all the pages. The trickster fox first fools Bear so that he can devour the pile of berries Bear has picked. Then Fox tricks Chipmunk and eats all his acorns. Fox twice tries to trick Eagle into giving him her three eggs, but Eagle refuses to fall for his wiles. Hungry for the eggs, Fox shakes the tree hard enough that Eagle's nest falls toward the ground. But this time Fox is disappointed. Bear, Chipmunk, and Eagle each catch one of the eggs and Fox is left with his mouth open and empty. The three other animals scold him, but when he runs away instead of apologizing Eagle grabs him up and deposits him on a tiny island. Fox's lamentations alert Walrus, and Fox thinks of one more trick as they argue over whether there are more animals on land or in the sea. A page in the front of the book suggests effective ways of using the shared reading. The longer, more complex sentences in small type on the parents' pages carry the bulk of the story, while the short sentences and easy words in large type on the children's pages invite a child to help read the engaging story out loud. The book is part of the "We Both Read" series.

    This book is really cute.

    My favorite charaecter in this book was Foxy, because he is funny and is smart. I liked the part of the book when when Foxy tricked the sea animals.
