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 fourth book in the series, Fox and Chick climb a tree, build a bookcase, and catch snowflakes!

HILARIOUS, LAUGH-OUT-LOUD FUN: This unlikely duo will have readers rolling with laughter as they follow along with their antics!

PERFECT FOR NEW READERS: The universal characters, humor, and comic-style layout make this series ideal for newly independent readers.

AWARD WINNING: The first book in the series was awarded a Geisel Award honor for "most distinguished book for beginning readers" by the American Library Association. It was also a New York Times Notable Children's Book.

KIDS LOVE GRAPHIC NOVELS: This series will appeal to visually oriented readers as well as new readers who are eager to tackle graphic novels.

 Full-color illustrations were rendered in pen, ink, and watercolor.

Praise & Reviews

School Library Journal

K-Gr 3-Fox and Chick return in three new stories highlighting Chick's humorous lack of self-awareness and Fox's gentle encouragement. Chick panics atop a tree, seemingly unable to climb down; Chick impatiently counts each snowflake in anticipation of sledding; and Chick isn't sure what to do with a book gifted by Fox. Ruzzier's gentle palette, large panels, and spacious speech bubbles ensure early readers will be able to follow the text and sequence of events. The friends model good listening skills and kindness, with each animal speaking clearly and projecting warm smiles. Chick's adorable antics will elicit giggles-for instance, building build a bookshelf for one book-but Fox makes sure Chick is never the butt of a joke. VERDICT The fuzzy pair once more exhibit behavior to emulate as they resolve minor differences, withhold judgment, and meet each other where they are. Fans of the series will be as delighted as newcomers.-Thomas Maluck
