The illustrations in this book are amazing. In the beginning you can see that fox is happy to come across Knox and that Knox is happy. As you go throughout the story you can see the facial expressions clearly. Knox gets surprised a lot because fox is constantly putting him in weird situations and his eyes are wide and his mouth is opened, as if he was saying, â€śWhat just happened.â€ť Toward the end of the story you can see Knoxâ€™s confusion. His face is droopy, his hands are mostly together, and there are squiggly lines above his head. At the end of the story Knox gets completely frustrated and it is drawn clearly in his face. Foxâ€™s surprise is also all over his face as Knox shoves him into the bottle with the beetles.
Page one reads:
Each set of tongue twisters gets progressively harder and harder (not to mention more and more disastrous in the illustrations) until Mr. Knox throws his hands up in frustration, and it all starts over again.
Definitely read it before you read
There are a few minor concerns. First of all, the fox really is a nasty character, and uses language that I know some parents object to - calling Mr. Knox dumb, that sort of thing. And of course it shows some violence in the tweedle beetle battle.
This sort of thing doesn't concern me, but if it does concern you, as always, read before you buy.
