Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Foxy is back, and once again his friend Emily needs his help—big-time! Emily is trying to make a Valentine's Day card, and she needs Foxy to remind her of all the things that she loves most. From hot chocolate with marshmallows to all kinds of flowers, Foxy is able to make everything Emily loves magically appear—but sometimes he makes a mistake. (Emily loves balloons, not raccoons!)

Luckily, Foxy can always find a good solution when things go wrong . . . and he knows just the right way to make Emily's Valentine's Day card complete! Foxy and Emily figure out exactly what Valentine's Day means to them in this sweet sequel, written and illustrated by Emma Dodd.

Review:

"In this sequel to Foxy, curly-haired Emily wants to draw what she loves best of all on her valentine, but can't decide what that is. Her magical companion Foxy offers inspiration: by waving his tail, he makes some of her favorite objects appear, though he doesn't always get it quite right ('Those are raccoons, not balloons!'). When Foxy points out that Valentine's Day is about 'who' not 'what' you love, Emily knows right away who should be the centerpiece of her creation. Dodd tempers the earnest message with oodles of eye candy and abundant silliness in her playfully unkempt digital illustrations. Ages 4 — 8." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
