Younger Readers

Foxy in Love is a brightly illustrated story for children ages 4-8. Curly ginger-haired Emma has a special friend with a special gift—Foxy, the fox.

Emily is having trouble deciding what to draw on a card she's making. Foxy, with the help of his magical tail, helps Emma come to the perfect solution through trial and error. Young readers will experience delight in these two friends throughout the fun-filled pages.

I felt this book was more girly than gender-neutral. Lots of pink goin' on.
