Happy publication day to Yvonne Ivinson’s Fox and the Box!
Fox and the Box
What can a fox do with a box? Have a grand adventure!
What can one little fox do with only a box? Perhaps make it a ship, and go on a trip? A boat that floats across the sea, with a tail as a sail and endless possibilities?
Author-illustrator Yvonne Ivinson’s debut picture book is a celebration of imagination, creativity, and language arts, starring a memorable main character. With a brief, engaging text, humorous illustrations, and a surprise ending, this is a perfect book for emerging readers and for sharing together.
“Exciting and easy to read. Ivinson tells her story in 46 simple words. . . . the paintings of storm, waves, and the small boat and occupants alone on a vast expanse of sea are pretty thrilling. . .Dramatic and accessible for new readers.” – Kirkus Reviews
“All the creatures depicted throughout the story burst with energy and personality, which allows those sharing the book together to extend the minimal text into an exciting adventure. The punchy words play with phonics and rhyme to create an enjoyable read-aloud as well as opportunities for new readers, and those sounding out their first words, to find success.” – Horn Book Magazine
I’m so excited for Yvonne’s gorgeous book to be out in the world, and I can’t wait to see what’s next for Fox and his friends!
