A delightful story about a child's imagination and thirst for adventure--yet how all roads truly do lead to home. I like how the mom is always very much a mom, yet allows her daughter "scope for the imagination" and doesn't poo-poo her daughter's fears and yearnings. Thanks, Chandra, for bringing this to my attention! :-)
This was one of my favourite books as a kid and I was thrilled to find it in an old box the other week, thankfully Mum had saved it :)
Little Fox Goes to the End of the World had become a little mythical in my mind. I hadn't seen the book for probably 15+ years and in that time it'd become a story about a cat trying to capture the wind, a story with the best illustrations ever.

A cutesy book about an imaginative little fox who explains how he will travel the world. His mother indulges the fantasy. After explaining all the dangers of the travel, the little fox admits he would miss his mother. She said she will have dinner waiting for him once his travels are through.

A little fox recounts how she will travel across the world, meeting everything from tigers to crocodiles, and the four winds. A little reminiscent of "Runaway Bunny" in how Little Fox has a solution for each encounter, and in the love between mother and child. The illustrations are large, colorful and just right. Delightful.
I don't know that I would actually read this at story time, but maaaybe. It's a bit long. This book could teach kids about bravery. I like the illustrations, and appreciate how it could teach kids to try to imagine what could happen/consequences.
