This book was awful. Perhaps it's because my children are a bit old for this, but I couldn't stand it. Every single time there is dialogue it is stated, "said Fox." "said Dexter." "said Mom." "said Louise." I said the word SAID more than I ever thought I could in the few minutes it took to read this!!

Fox has an awful attitude, telling his mom "You're joking." when told to watch his kid sister. He goes around looking for friends to play with, and is even rude to their parents! One parent says the...more

In this volume' Fox is told to watch his sister which results in her scaling a telephone pole. In another adventure, brother and sister go to the pool where Fox is afraid to jump off the diving board. In the last story, Fox's friends lure him away from his crossing guard post to hang out at the pool (even though Fox doesn't have a bathing suit). In a strange twist, he falls asleep on the beach and has a nightmare about shirking his crossing guard responsibilities so he rushes back to his post, w...more
Loved these back when I was learning to read!!!
What a crazy little book. First Fox chases his sister up a telephone pole, then a diving pool. In the last story, his friends invite him to go swimming. He says that he doesn't have a swimming suit and they say to go without one, they won't look. Then later a dog says, "Next time you should wear some clothes." But if you look at the illustration, the dog is naked, too. lol
This book contains three stories about Fox, his friends, and family. In each story, Fox faces an ethical dilemma.

This would be an engaging and fun book for a 1st or 2nd grade early reader. It is in the format of a chapter book, but uses simplistic text and sentence structure. The pictures are still on every page to help the reader.

Mommy says: Well, Cana sort of read it herself as of Oct. 2008. Sometimes a 5yo just doesn't want to follow up on a parent's request, imagine that. So she read parts, Daddy read parts, and all were happy.
Yes, this book is for people in first grade. It is frickin awesome.
Short stories with fox and his sister Louise.
