My parents are probably lucky this book didn’t exist when I was a child – if it had, I would have been constantly pestering them to read it to me ‘just one more time.’ Even as an adult, I felt the need to start over and read it again immediately after finishing it. Harold the fox is a wonderful character, an adorable detective with the courage to follow his own path and treat others with compassion. I couldn’t help but smile at his adventure. Sweet, clever, silly, charming, and hilarious, Outfoxed is a joy for all ages.— Jason
From the very first lines of this book, I knew Harold the fox would be an instant favorite of mine. I mean, really, how could you not love a fox whose greatest love is Swiss cheese? With whimsical artwork and the most adorable detective fox that you'll ever meet, Outfoxed is a wonderfully engaging story that makes a perfect addition to any picture book library.— Heather H.
Harold is unlike any other fox. He hates eating chicken, for one thing. He much prefers reading detective novels. When Harold's father challenges him to catch a chicken as part of his initiation into adulthood, Harold is faced with a dilemma--should he obey his father and endanger the chicken's life, or do what his heart tells him is right? The latest title from award-winning illustrator Claudia Boldt, Outfoxed introduces a smart, independent-minded character in Harold the fox and is sure to become a bedtime favorite.
