The droll illustrations of the fox grimacing through a bath, a collar, a dog jacket, and a walk on a leash end with rescue by a new friend from the wild. The book’s final words cement the fact that neither Ooko nor the new friend has been assigned a gender. Playful, joyous, and hip

Synopsis

     Ooko has everything a fox could want: a stick, a leaf and a rock. Well, almost everything . . . Ooko wants someone to play with too! The foxes in town always seem to be playing with their two-legged friends, the Debbies. Maybe if he tries to look like the other foxes, one of the Debbies will play with him too. But when Ooko finally finds his very own Debbie, things don't turn out quite as he had expected!
     A quirky, funny, charmingly illustrated story about finding friendship and being true to yourself.
