Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Foxy has a special talent: He is magically able to produce anything he needs from his bushy red tail.

Sometimes Foxy comes up with the wrong solutions, such as the time he tried to give his friend Emily an eraser for school and gave her an elephant instead!

Fortunately, Foxy's magic mishaps can always be fixed. And he knows that some very important things—like making new friends—don't require any magic at all.

In this humorous tale of friendship, award-winning author-illustrator Emma Dodd introduces a truly endearing new character with a great big heart.

Review:

"In a reassuring tale about first-day-of-school jitters, a girl commiserates with a magical but accident-prone fox. Curly-haired Emily is sleepless beneath her flowered comforter when Foxy (accompanied by a bluebird) prances through her window. 'What's the matter?' asks Foxy. 'Whatever it is, I'm sure I can help.' Emily admits she might need a pencil and eraser to start school properly. Foxy confidently waves his 'magic tail,' producing a penguin and an elephant. The startled bluebird puts a wing over its beak, and Foxy conjures the correct items. Before long, Emily giggles at Foxy's errors ('And here's a schoolbag!' 'No, silly, that's a pirate flag!') and nearly forgets her anxiety. Foxy is tucking the penguin and other supplies back into his voluminous tail when Emily ventures, 'What if nobody likes me?' 'Now, you don't need my magic for that, Emily,' Foxy replies. 'I know you'll make plenty of friends.' Dodd's digital art, traced in inky black and sprinkled with candy-colored stars, zooms in for closeups and out to picture Emily's ordinary room. Dodd (Meow Said the Cow) projects a cheerful attitude, combining make-believe with practical necessities. Ages 3 — 7. (July)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
