Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, March 1, 2011:
"Grey’s wonderfully expressive, richly textured mixed-media collages leap and bound with funny details (like the "All-Purpose Flakes" box in the kitchen, perfect for both baking and bathing). Vivacious design elements such as comic-strip–like panels for action sequences and cut strips of type for the dialogue in the climactic fight add further fun. The clear, clever text—rendered in a large font—is as fresh and invigorating as the rest."

My grandchildren live in 5 different States. One way I've found to stay close to them is to read to them over cassette tapes. I've sent each of them a recorder, and I read books to them each a couple of times a year. I chose this book in my recent batch for my soon-to-be 4 yr. old granson. It was a great hit! This darling book takes place by the ocean...so special! And with a gentle moral about entertaining strangers who may make us see what we're doing, it is beautifully told and beautifully illustrated. All ends well when the smart and wiley fox leaves the three friends alone again...and they have learned some valuable lessons from his visit. My grandson loves an adventure story and a funny one, too. This great little book meets both those criteria!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
