Staff Reviews

Once you let this sweet little fox into your life, you will never want to let him go. He is one of the most endearing characters I have come across in a long time, and the author truly brings him to life, treating him like a genuine friend. Sara Pennypacker is a wonderful storyteller, a voice of wisdom, empathy, and hope. With Pax, she broke my heart and then mended it, stitching the torn pieces back together with tender care and soothing grace. Though the journey was harrowing, when I reached the end of it, I felt a renewed sense of peace with the world around me. Sincere, poignant, and stunningly beautiful, this is the kind of book that made me fall in love with reading in the first place. I can’t wait to share it with you.


If you've ever lost a pet, or been angry at a parent, or wondered how war feels to the young and vulnerable, read this book. The author puts the reader straight into the mind of a fox and the 12-year-old boy who rescued him as a young abandoned kit, using the loveliest language to describe their struggles with these thorny issues. You might cry, though. Be prepared!
