A box about a boy who abandons his pet fox when his father tells him he has to, but who then changes his mind and journeys to get his fox back.

Powerfully and beautifully written, with alternating chapters from the boy and the fox, it touches on powerful themes of war and disability, found family, knowing yourself, telling the truth, fear of becoming like family you dislike, loss, love and not giving up. ( )

Peter (human) and Pax (fox) have a special relationship, but Peter is forced to abandon Pax. Immediately regretting his decision, Peter decides to rescue Pax and the book is told in alternating chapters about the trials and tribulations of both. Peter breaks his foot, and is nursed both physically and emotionally by the mysterious Vola while Pax finds a young and old fox friend, who help him survive in the wild. I think the book's portrayal of humans was pretty harsh, but accurate. The ending was not what I expected, but I liked it even though some important things were left a bit unresolved. I would have liked more illustrations for this middle school reader. Kudos to Ms. Pennypacker for beating one of Riordan's 2016 books in the GR voting. ( )

Overall, a good piece of work. To be admired for its frank approach to heartbreak, fear, love, loss, and resolve. And the illustrations are absolute gems...wish there were more of them! It is DARK, though. It opens with the most desolate of scenes, a boy having to drive away the fox he has cherished and cared for through much of his life, and I wondered if I wanted to read the rest. Chapters alternate between the boy and the fox, and both are frightened, in pain, and staunch. The fox is believable - she has clearly done her homework on fox behavior, with allowances for the purposes of the story. I did keep turning pages, though I had a feeling (correct, as it turned out) how this would end. I think Pennypacker made some choices that weaken the book: there is simply too much packed (no pun intended) in here, especially for a middle-grade novel. Dead or coldhearted parents, a hermitic woman, a vague war, PTSD, violent deaths and dismemberments, baseball... It all occurs in an oddly placeless, timeless setting that leaves all these elements a bit afloat in a murky sea. Perhaps this was meant to reflect how confusing and random the world seems to kids, but it needed a stronger anchor to reality. The language is forceful, she pulls no punches, and very admirably refuses to write down to her presumably young readers, which means that older kids and adults will also find this readable and engaging. Sometimes disturbing, confusing, also poignant and brave... An unusual and dark story, but definitely worth the read. ( )

Under his father's authoritarian gaze, fourteen-year-old Peter reluctantly and tearfully sets his pet fox free in the wilderness. War is coming, and Peter is being sent to live with his grandfather and Pax, despite having lived with Peter for the past seven years, is not welcome. Over the next weeks, as they both determine to find each other again, both boy and fox discover courage and strengths they didn't realize were within them. This was a bittersweet story of love and friendship, set in an unspecified time and place. ( )

Pax is a fox who had been saved by Peter when he was just a kit. They are fast friends and have built a powerful relationship between them. But one day, Peter's father enlists in the war, sends Peter to his grandfather's house, and tells Peter he must let Pax go back to the wild. Three-hundred miles away now, Peter realizes he should be with Pax. So he heads out despite the war raging on. He just wants to be with his friend. Pax and Peter have many adventures as they try to find each. Will they be reunited? ( )

Author's note: Fox communication is a complex system of vocalization, gesture, scent, and expression. The "dialogue" in italics in Pax's chapters attempts to translate their eloquent language.
"The Gulf Stream will flow through a straw, provided the straw is aligned to the Gulf Stream and not at crosscurrents." / "What's that supposed to mean?" / "It means align yourself, boy." / "Align myself?"/ "Figure out how things are, and accept it." (p. 98)
"I have more than everything I need." Vola sat. "I have peace here." / "Because it's so quiet?" / "No. Because I am exactly where I should be, doing exactly what I should be doing. That is peace." (p. 102)
"Rises from the ashes. I know what a phoenix is." / "Right. But out of its own ashes." "... the new bird rises up out of the old bird's ashes. My mother loved that. She said it meant that no matter how bad things got, we could always make ourselves new again." (p. 116-117)
'Two but not two.' "It's a Buddhist concept. Nonduality. It's about oneness, about how things that seem to be separate are really connected to one another. There are no separations. " Vola picked up his fox again. "This is not just a piece of wood. This is also the clouds that brought the rain that watered the tree, and the birds that nested in it and the squirrels that fed on its nuts. It is also the food my grandparents fed me that made me strong enough to cut the tree, and it's the steel in the axe I used. And it's how you know your fox, which allowed you to carve him yesterday. And it's the story you will tell your children when you give this to them. All these things are separate but also one, inseparable." (p. 186-187)
