The fabulous fox sisters return in three fresh, funny stories perfect for beginning readers. Whether Zelda and Ivy are combating the injustice of cucumber sandwiches for lunch, deciding what to leave the children of the future in their time capsule, or solving Zelda's writer's block, they are sure to tickle the funny bones of both new and returning fans.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "K-Gr. 3. Adorable fox sisters Zelda and Ivy return in a beginning chapter book divided into three episodes. In the first story, Zelda rebels when she learns that Dad has made cucumber sandwiches for lunch, again: That's it. I'm running away. Ivy follows, and after packing their essentials (pj's, Princess Mimi doll, tea set), the sisters decamp to a secluded spot in the yard. In this and in the following stories, which focus on the sisters' time capsule and on an invented love potion, Kvasnosky weaves in brisk, pitch-perfect dialogue: I wish we had cookies, says Ivy, hiding in the yard. Be tough, Zelda responds. Children will recognize the details and the sibling dynamics, which are nicely enhanced in the gouache pictures' saturated colors and uncluttered scenes. Whether reading alone or aloud, kids will look forward to more from the fox sisters, who find excitement and adventure in the cozy indoors as well as in familiar backyards. --Gillian Engberg Copyright 2006 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Outraged that their father has made cucumber sandwiches again, the siblings first introduced in Zelda and Ivy (in a starred review, PW wrote, "Rare for a book about siblings, its sympathies reach out to readers regardless of their birth order"), pack their bags in Zelda and Ivy: The Runaways by Laura McGee Kvasnosky. Always in synch with her audience, the author does not let the sisters stray far (they peek at their parents through the hedge) in the title story; the other two involve creating a time capsule and magic potion.
