Lovely story, bright with urgency and realism. This is not a cute-and-fuzzy tale, but one where Red Fox is hungry, hungry, hungry and searching for food at the end of this long winter day. The poetry and pictures are beautiful. Good story if you want to share "what really happens" in nature with little ones.
(Spoiler: the fox does find food, so happy ending for him.)

Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
Gorgeously detailed and realistic illustrations are the highlight of this book about a red fox. The narrative is a non-rhyming poem about a hungry red fox and the world around him. The story tells about prey and predator and the food chain that puts the fox in both positions. It ends with a comforting scene (at least for the fox and his kin.) We enjoyed reading this poem together, and we loved the wonderful pictures.

A hungry red fox is looking for food to take back to his family. I love the way this book captures the wildness of the fox and how it must feel to hunt and be hunted. The pictures are beautiful and realistic.
