Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Tessa, a red fox kit, is too lazy to hunt, but she can always talk her brother Rex into sharing his catch. Finally Rex's altruism wears thin, and he declares that he's going off on his own. Not to be outdone, Tessa goes her own way as well, eventually vying with the raccoons for the scraps in city garbage cans. Only after she is trapped overnight in a dumpster does Tessa finally face up to her indolence and resolve to change. Lest any reader miss the point, an afterword addressed to "parents and educators" pounds home the book's didactic purpose: people "must work to live succesfully." However, Maeno's (Minou; Kylie's Song) lovely watercolors, filled with botanical abilities, may redeem this heavy-handed story for some nature lovers. The illustrated endpapers add facts about flora and fauna glimpsed within. A videocassette and an activity guide are also available. Ages 5-9.

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 1?Tessa is a lazy fox who decides to go live on her own. She survives by eating out of garbage cans and gets caught in a dumpster, where she spends hours contemplating her indolence and subsequently vows to learn to hunt. While the book claims to promote self-reliance, the plodding and uninvolving writing and the use of anthropomorphism just muddle the issue. The endpapers contain a two-page spread of information on the Ojai Valley, CA, which gives the definite impression that this is a nonfiction title; however, very few facts are offered and the emphasis is placed instead on animals' (decidedly human) emotions and thought processes. The illustrations rely heavily on wide-eyed creatures smiling at one another, with the piece de resistance being Tristan, a dog fox, stepping out of the tall grass and introducing himself to Tessa. This well-meaning, but unfocused, meandering effort misses the mark by a mile.?Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo and Erie County Public Library, NY
