an inhumane trap and befriended the right loving and warm
person. This story will teach you about true love between human
and animals. It is a book for all ages.
Absolutely Love It....
The author wrote this true story of her lengthy encounter with a red fox in Deer Isle off the coast of Maine, partly in hopes that the tale would encourage the banning of such traps in the U.S. It had lost a foot to such a trap.
The story first appeared in a shorter version in the August 1988 issue of Cricket. Here, it runs 32 pages, and is accompanied by lavish color sketches of the wild animal, temporarily tamed by both human friend and desperate need.
What ultimately became of the fox in this story, which the author called Vicky, we'll never know. But based on her poetic reporting, readers can hope for the best.
The author engrosses even the youngest of readers in a way that is, well, foxy.
--- Alyssa A. Lappen
Cherie Mason has a very soothing voice and the musical accompaniment is outstanding. The box calls the music, "music illustrations" and I wholeheartedly agree.
If you want some quiet time, put on this tape and have the children draw or rest while they listen. It is 30 minutes long but they are definitely not wasted minutes.
I have only one note of caution and that is -- there is one part where the author describes the foxes injured leg as being gone. She says that she figures he probably chewed it off because it was useless. This did not upset my children but please be aware that you may need to discuss parts of this story with your children.
I think I enjoyed this story just as much, if not more, than the children did. I think you and your family will too.
