Whether bringing to life the legends of the mightiest Greek and Norse gods in their widely beloved collections of myths, or retelling Chekhovâ€™s tale of a little lost dog as they do in Foxie, the dâ€™Aulaires excelled at the arts of storytelling and illustration. Foxieâ€™s tale, wonderful to look at and delightful to read, is certain to charm both young children and early readers.Poor Foxie! With her â€śhead like a fox and her tail like a cinnamon rollâ€ť she is adorable enough to charm anyone. But all her young master wants to do is tease herâ€”and he isnâ€™t very good at remembering mealtime either. One day his pranks go too far when he lures his dog out onto the busy city streets with a tasty bone and loses her. Foxie is soon rescued by a roly-poly circus-animal trainer who spots her fl air for singing and adds her to his act, alongside a piano-playing cat and a strutting rooster. Opening night is full of surprises, though, and Foxie is overjoyed when she hears a familiar voice in the audience, calling out her name.
