A Pig, a Fox, and a Box – By Jonathan Fenske
Fox is sly and sneaky, but is he sneaky enough to play tricks on Pig? In this story designed to engage early readers, charming characters combine with simple text, lively illustrations, and laugh-out-loud humor to help boost kids’ confidence and create lifelong readers!
In the style of Mo Willems, Jonathan Fenske tells three humorous stories of two friends, Fox and Pig, and their shenanigans with a cardboard box. Fox tries to play games with Pig. First, Fox hides inside the box, only to be sat on and crushed by Pig. Next, he tries to trick Pig into thinking that Fox is crushed beneath a pile of stones. Pig, wanting to rescue his friend, tosses the stones over his shoulder—where they land on the box and crush his friend hiding inside.
With comic art and simple language, this title is sure to have kids rolling with laughter.
