Didn't really hold together; events were unconvincing; seemed to assume you already knew and were invested in the characters. ( )

Fox and his friends go trick or treating and have to take fox's little sister. They complain about having to drag around his sister, so they tell her to sit on a bench or they will turn her into a pumpkin. When they get back from trick or treating his sister is a pumpkin! They go to the hospital and try to get her to turn back into a fox. Teaches children to be nice to younger siblings or younger children in general.

This book includes three stories: A Faster Fox, Comic Fox, and Fox Outfoxed. A faster fox is about a derby race and fox cheats to win using his younger sister but is then disqualified. In Comic Fox, Fox is reading his comics until a friend comes over and says it is for little kids. Fox ends up giving her his book and she takes it to her other friends and they think it is cool making her cool. Fox Outfoxed is about Halloween. Fox has to take his younger sister trick-or-treating when he doesnt want to. He and his friends make her stay on a bench. When they go to pick her up she has turned into a pumpkin. His mom and sister were ticking him though.
