Pax was just a cub when Peter rescued him and the pair have been inseparable ever since. When war strikes on the country and Peter is forced to move in with his Grandfather, he has no choice but to return Pax back to the wild. A decision he regrets, Peter sets out to find his fox while Pax waits hopefully for his boy. A moving story about a beautiful bond of friendship.
We were not only gripped by Pennypacker’s wonderful writing style but were also incredibly moved by this story. Although sad at times, the strong bond between a young boy and his fox is very captivating. If you are an animal lover, the description of the woodland and animals are enchanting.
