Reviews

School Library Journal s Fuse#8 Best of 2016 The Thompsons sensitively examine the effect of human development on wildlife through the lens of a fox that has been separated from its family. A happy reunion for the fox thanks to the construction of a highway underpass designed to give animals a safe crossing feels very well deserved. Publishers Weekly.. .author Thompson's words give a gentle, reflective tone to the story that addresses not only habitat reduction, but also the difficult problem of animals and vehicles. Illustrator Thompson's luminous artwork adds empathy to the text and offers hope not only for the fox, but also for many wild creatures... Kirkus A primary purchase where young naturalists abound.
