A Pig, A Fox, and A Box
by Jonathan Fenske
Award: Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor 2016
Book Blurb from the catalog: After finding a box just the right size to hide in, a little fox tries to play some tricks on his big friend, Pig, but things do not work out exactly as he planned.
This would be a wonderful book to compare/contrast with the story of The Boy Who Cried Wolf! Add a compare/contrast with the characters in Clever Beatrice for further compare/contrast discussion!
Other comparing/contrasting of the pig characters from this book and the Elephant and Piggie series would really get readers thinking!
The book is very open ended and allows for further lessons on making predictions (Will fox play tricks on pig tomorrow?).
