This book follows Vixen, a female fox, as she searches for food, finds a mate, and has kits -- who then grow up themselves.

While it is presented like a story book, this is actually a factual book that provides the reader with a great deal of information about foxes, their habitats, life cycles, etc. Still more information is included as backmatter.

The impressionistic illustrations are quite beautiful and fit the text well. ( )

Good info, sweet illustrations. Text is not as lively nor the information as integrated as I'd prefer as an adult, but kids into Facts About Animals!! (which was definitely me as a youngster) will probably love it. Especially great is the leaping up and into the snow illustration. ( )

This stunning book explores the hidden life of foxes. In a white, fluffy landscape, the red fox is a glowing blur. The vixen's story starts in the winter, as she hunts for scarce food in a snow-covered landscape. Italicized words are explained in a glossary in the back. The quiet vixen drifts through the landscape, pounces on small rodents, and caches her extra food. As spring begins to green the landscape, the vixen finds a mate and together they protect their territory, feast on apples in the orchard, and escape from dogs. The land turns to greens and yellows in spring and summer and the vixen finds an abandoned animal burrow. She stays inside while her mate brings food and in a few weeks there are fuzzy fox cubs, learning to hunt with worms and beetles. Eventually, they too will grow up and find their own territories and mates.

There is further information about foxes, a glossary, and further reading. The lush paintings and rich language aren't a good fit for the average preschool storytime, but it would make a stunning read-aloud for older listeners or children who love learning about animals.

Verdict: This lovely book is a look at a common but often overlooked and rarely seen animal and is sure to be a strong addition to your animal picture books.
