“In this latest installment to the wildly successful and endearing Fox and Chick series, readers once again find three stories that show just how much Fox and Chick care for one another. . . . The brilliant pen, ink, and watercolor illustrations have spare backgrounds, placing the focus on Fox and Chick, who have delightfully detailed facial expressions. A marvelous visit with familiar friends!”-Kirkus Reviews
“Fox and Chick return in three new stories highlighting Chick’s humorous lack of self-awareness and Fox’s gentle encouragement. . . . The fuzzy pair once more exhibit behavior to emulate as they resolve minor differences, withhold judgment, and meet each other where they are. Fans of the series will be as delighted as newcomers.”-School Library Journal
