So many imaginative excuses for not doing his homework. I loved the illustrations–they reminded me of a cross between A Series of Unfortunate Events and Mysterious Benedict Society. My only complaint about this book is that it is small in size…not appropriate for a large storytime reading. But sitting down with a little one this is great. So much to look at and so much fun to read. Will start many discussions.
A sweet story about Fox who sets out to “make” friends. His first try involves and apple and some sticks. When that friend doesn’t play, he asks Rabbit, who is passing by, to help him make a bigger friend. When that friend doesn’t play, they then enlist the help of Squirrel. That friend then fails as well. Fox’s mama comes by to ask who his new friends are and suddenly Fox realizes that his friends are Rabbit and Squirrel and they continue to play the day away. Great illustrations, big sized book would be great for a read aloud or storytime.
