Product Details


A fox named Fred quests for a life away from his native city…In a nice twist, the ending defies the familiar "no place like home" trope. There’s lots that appeals: a polite but determined fox, just enough danger, and plenty of colorful art.
—Kirkus Reviews

In this charming British import…Fred’s adventure gently encourages children to imagine and be curious about the wider world around them in this readaloud suited to classrooms and bedtime alike.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

With collage-style cutout illustrations varying from full page to multiple scenes on one, McFarland tells a tale reminiscent of the classic “Country Mouse, City Mouse” story…The illustrations and the fun text design make this a great read-aloud story to be enjoyed by a broad audience. A strong addition to any picture book collection.
—School Library Journal

This simple story shows the power of inquiry. Bold illustrations use crayon, acrylic, and watercolor to depict both city and countryside scenes. The story flows quickly and ends with a chance for open-ended discussion.
—School Library Connection
