Why didn’t anyone tell me about this series? Seriously, isn’t that why we get on those book websites like Goodreads and Booklikes? You’ll are letting me down. Because no one told me about volume one.
Because this is friggin awesome!
I can’t figure out if this is supposed to simply be a graphic novel about a fox or a children’s picture book about a fox. It doesn’t really matter. There is no text for the most part, just opening and closing quotes. The action involves animals. In this volume, while the central character is a fox, a polar bear, a brown (grizzly?) bear, some rabbits, seals, killer whales, and musk oxen make appearances.
In short, a fox is on a hunt when the shit hits the fan, or to be more exact, a volcano goes kabomb. Then it is a race for survival.
And there are porcupines. I forgot to mention them. Sorry. Awesome porcupines. No woodchucks, however.
What is really great about this book, well the first really great thing, is that the animals are animals. It isn’t Potter but one wear killer whales and foxes eat other animals. It’s a bit like watching Nature or National Geographic but without the annoying voice over.
The second really great thing about this book is the artwork. It is so prefect. Some of the images are absolutely haunting, like when the fox goes down a hole and . . . well, I’m not going to ruin it for you.
I’m not a child, and I don’t have children in my life. But this, I’m buying this.
