A Pig, A Fox, and A Box

Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor book, A Pig, A Fox, And A Box, by Jonathan Fenske  has all the things beginning readers want and need: humor, pictures that tell part of the story, just a few words on a page, an easily read font and rhyming. I have kid tested it with several struggling readers, they all loved it.

In the first chapter, Fox decides to play a trick on Pig. Like Wylie Coyote, the trick is on Fox. Again, in the second chapter,  Fox plays a new trick on Pig, at first Pig is fooled  but when Fox really needs help, Pig decides he is playing another trick and does not help Fox. In chapter 3, as the two friends walk away, a bandaged Fox decides that he is done playing tricks today. 

The AR is 1.3 (Penguin has it as a level two reader). The Sonoma County Library has seven copies.
