Review “Pax the book is like Pax the fox: half wild and wholly beautiful.” ( New York Times Book Review) “Moving and poetic.” ( Kirkus Reviews (starred review)) “Pennypacker’s expert, evenhanded storytelling reveals stunning depth in a relatively small package.” ( Booklist (starred review)) “In an exceptionally powerful, if grim story, Pennypacker does a remarkable job of conveying the gritty perspective of a sheltered animal that must instantly learn to live in the wild.” ( Publishers Weekly (starred review)) “A startling work of fiction that should be read-and discussed-by children and adults alike.” (School Library Journal (starred review)) “An emotional, thought-provoking story of conflict, loyalty, and love.” (The Horn Book) “Sometimes an author steps aside from a popular series to break new ground, as evidenced in this arresting novel, at once a wilderness adventure about survival and a philosophical foray into big questions.” ( San Francisco Chronicle) “Pennypacker’s elegant language and insight into human nature spin a fable extolling empathy above all. By the novel’s poignant ending, Pennypacker has gently made the case that all of us should aspire to that view—children and adults alike.” (Time magazine) “Searingly honest and heartbreakingly lovely, Pax is, quite simply, a masterpiece.” (Katherine Applegate, Newbery Award-winning author of The One and Only Ivan) “A sweeping and enchanting wartime story of trust, loyalty, betrayal, and the love of a boy for the fox he’s raised since he was a kit. A master storyteller, Pennypacker leads the reader along a path of shifting hopes to the story’s heart-wrenching conclusion.” (Ann M.
