Summary: Friends Fox and Chick share three stories for early readers. In the first, Chick asks to use Fox’s bathroom, then proceeds to have a party with her friends there. Next, Chick can’t understand why Fox prefers vegetables to small animals, but when she realizes she herself is a small animal, is happy to share his vegetable soup. Finally, Chick asks Fox to paint her portrait, but can’t sit still look enough for him to do it. 56 pages; grades K-3.
Pros: Early readers will love the cartoon dialogue and friendship reminiscent of Elephant and Piggie or Frog and Toad. With any luck, this will be the beginning of a new series.
Cons: A friendship between a fox and a chick makes me a bit nervous.
