Ever since Officer Blue Fox came to visit Miss Fox's class, rumors have started! Bear saw Officer Blue Fox stop Miss Fox on her bike; she must have done something wrong! The students start to see Miss Fox around town doing strange things like getting a disguise of a big hat and sunglasses. When they find evidence that she is leaving town they all conclude she is going to jail and needs to escape! Do the children have it right or are they guilty of spreading too much gossip?

This is the perfect book to teach children that things are not always as they seem. And that even if there is a ton of evidence that supports a theory, that does not mean that the theory is true.

If you like pairing books with aromatherapy as much as I do, I think the perfect combination for the book would be diffusing a few drops of doTERRA's clary sage and a few drops of lemongrass. But are great for opening the mind to consider other possibilities.

Students in Miss Fox's class misunderstood that Miss Fox would be in jail because they witnessed her with Officer Blue frequently. Students assumed that police officer is used to catch a person who commits a crime, so Miss Fox must violate laws and be with Officer Blue. It turned out that she was getting married to him.
The lesson of the story could be summarized by the statement of Miss Fox that “Make sure you have all the facts straight before you start telling stories about others” (unpaged

This is an entertaining story in the Miss Fox's Class series of books by Eileen Spinelli. The story helps children understand the consequences of gossip and rumor and how inaccurate they can be.

The narrative is short and fun to read aloud and the illustrations are colorful and cartoonish. We enjoyed reading this book together.
