A happy reunion for the fox—thanks to the construction of a highway underpass designed to give animals a safe crossing—feels very well deserved.
-Publishers Weekly

Synopsis

As Fox wanders through a strange landscape, he cannot help but be reminded—at every corner—of the streams, the trees, and the family he once knew. Fox would like nothing more than to return to his home, but it seems the cityscape has built up around him.           Follow Fox as he looks for a way back home to the wild green land where every fox belongs. Back matter shows readers the creative ways humans are helping to mitigate habitat encroachment in our towns and cities.

Illustrator Thompson’s luminous artwork adds empathy to the text and offers hope not only for the fox, but also for many wild creatures; a sign indicating the site of a future wildlife preserve will ease many young listeners’ anxiety. Informative and empathetic.
