An injured magpie and a one-eyed dog live happily together in the forest, until a jealous fox arrives to teach them what it means to be alone. Unsettling, dramatic and ultimately richly rewarding, Fox is a book unlike any other. The tale of a partnership between Magpie and Dog and the triangle that results when Fox appears, it is rich in allegory, ripe for discussion and radiant in illustration. With complexities that resonate throughout the seemingly simple story line, Fox is at the same time confusing, powerful, and thought provoking.

Teachers- this is an amazing book. I cannot wait to use it as a mentor text. It has so many teaching points that I’m struggling to decide how to use it first.

1) It has multiple layers. It can easily be used for close reading strategies. You’ll have to decide how deep to take it, depending on your students. *It has some dark points.*

2) Authors craft- I think you could use this to teach every indicator (speaking for 4th grade). The font and style isn’t typical, which makes a great discussion point. It also includes an examples similes or metaphors- I can’t remember which because it’s at school.

3) Vocabulary- many teaching points for using context clues. Several challenging words throughout the story, all with great context clues.

4) inferences- tons!! Particularly with character’s motivations and traits and plot development. It’s also great for predicting because the whole book will have you wondering if Fox will be the bad guy or not and what will Bird decide to do.

I suppose I should review the seller and not just the book. I don’t normally buy non-prime items, so it did seem like it took forever. It was shipped as promised- I’m just spoiled with Prime’s two day shipping. It arrived brand new and in perfect condition. Definitely worth the wait.

If you buy the book and know of any other similar books, please comment!

I bought this book because granddaughter loves foxes. This book is not what you think. It is really a lesson in being satisfied with what you have and knowing who to trust and of course perseverance in adversity. My 5 year old granddaughter actually loved it and seemed very touched by the story line. I had hesitated as I was reading, thinking it might be upsetting. She had me read it to her every night when I was visiting. It is deeply moving and has a real lesson that can be discussed by adults to their kids. I highly recommend it. As a teacher myself, I recommend it for elementary teachers to read to their classes.

My son’s teacher was doing a read-aloud, and he loved this so much he asked me to purchase it so we could read it at home as well. It’s such a sweet story, and I hope there will be a sequel one day :-)

A modern-day fairy tale set in the outback of Australia, Fox, by Margaret Wild, is a stunning and provocative piece of children's literature. It describes the lives of Dog and Magpie, who survive the aftermath of a horrible forest fire that leaves both animals injured. They band together in friendship to help each other survive, and they are met by the mysterious and haunting Fox.

Magpie's need for friendship is mitigated by her desire to fly again, but she does not trust Fox, who promises that riding on her back will be closer to flying than riding on Dog's back. After three appeals, Magpie gives in to her temptation, and Fox takes her on his back. Fox abandons her, and Magpie is left in the broiling desert to walk back home to Dog.

This book presents deep and complex issues that will not only confront our children, but also ourselves. I am moved every time I read this book, and the points of discussion that can arise out of this book are boundless. If we expect and believe that our children can think and talk big about deep issues, then this book is a must-have.

Brilliant and deeply moving. Talk about a book that will spark an intertesting conversation. Anyone who's ever had a best friend will find themselves in this story. I've got a K-1 class this year, not going to start off with this one, but later in the year absutely going to I introduce my kiddos to this amaing book. What a treasure!

This is a beautifully illustrated book. The text is in an unusual position on the page which adds to the mysterious allure of a story whose possible interpretations are many. This is a perfect mentor text for exploring theme, and could be used in classrooms from upper elementary to high school.
This is a great story to teach a number of different concepts such as character traits, inferences, plot, visualizing, questioning, and most importantly, literary analysis. It is not exactly a happy story, but in my opinion, that makes it better for the students to analyze and discuss. My students really enjoyed the story.
