Fox and Chick are back in this newest book in the hilarious early reader series by Geisel Honoree Sergio Ruzzier.

In the tradition of Frog and Toad, this critically acclaimed early reader series features Fox and Chick – two unlikely friends who despite their differences always manage to find a way to get along. In this third book in the series, Fox and Chick have a sleepover, search for a lost hammer and throw a surprise party that unexpectedly surprises everyone. The universal characters, humor and comic-style layouts make it ideal for both the picture book audience and emerging readers.Full-color illustrations were rendered in pen, ink, and watercolor.

Horn Book

Following their wacky antics in the previous two volumes (The Party and Other Stories, rev. 7/18; The Quiet Boat Ride and Other Stories, rev. 7/19), this charmingly mismatched pair returns for three more stories. The first begins after bedtime. Chick wakes Fox to invite himself in for a sleepover but eventually takes over the entire bed, leaving Fox tired and awake on the floor. Next, Chick finds his lost hammer and decides to put a nail in a brick wall, but the hammer goes missing again before he manages it. Fox suggests an alternative that gets the nail in the wall—a perfect place to hang a newly painted picture of a missing hammer. (Observant readers will know where to find the hammer, but Chick settles for admiring his painting of it.) The final story involves a surprise party for Chick’s birthday, one that Chick demands Fox throw. Clever Fox manages to make it a surprise in spite of interfering Chick, but in the end the real surprise is for Fox. (It is not Chick’s birthday at all.) The offbeat tales told through comic panel art and colorful settings, combined with the excitable, bossy Chick and the easygoing, sensible Fox, create another installment in this comics-style picture book series that works for readers and listeners alike. That brick wall from the second story can be found on the endpapers—bare at the front but covered with pictures of presumably missing objects at the back—tying together the latest exploits of these two friends beautifully.
