Simple text and humorous illustrations pair perfectly for a story that's deceptively rich and complete in action, narrative, and characterization. I can see how it won the Geisel for 2024! Nicely done!

A sweet story of courage, with a fun mechanism to the art (turning the book different ways based on the direction the bird is moving). This would be good for SEL discussions.

2022 Caldecott Honor Book

Love this picture book! The story is delightful and the little bird has a "can do" attitude! I am a big fan of books that you have to rotate, move, etc. to present in Storytime so the format/design is wonderful. Mel has friends who try to help, but the she is fearless! (only later do we find out why) Also, enjoy a little humor for adult readers as well.

This is a great choice to read with one child or a group!

2022 recipient of the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award

Love this whimsical early reader! The repetitiveness and cute illustrations will carry the reader along as fox explores the night, despite the monsters. Tabor uses senses to immerse reader in the action as fox meets new friends.
Great choice for a beginning independent reader.
