Summary
"Charming . . . Fred's adventure gently encourages children to imagine and be curious about the wider world around them." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Fred is a city fox, but the city can be a scary place. It's noisy, it's smoky, and it's often dangerous. One day, Fred sees a flock of birds flying over the rooftops. Where do they go? he wonders. When a bird tells him about the place called the wild, he decides to go in search of it. Will he find the wild? And what will happen if he does?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Fred, a fox, lives in a big city with his cousins. They love the city, but Fred finds it smoky, noisy, and very, very fast. He watches birds fly overhead and wonders where they're going. After conversing with a wild goose, he begins to long for the wild. One day, frightened by a construction truck, he runs into a dark tunnel and finally emerges . . . in the wild, where the trees are greener, the ground is softer, the air is cleaner, and the smells and sounds are wonderful. There a friendly fox asks him, Do you know where the birds go? McFarland uses crayon, acrylic, and watercolor very effectively in the attractive digital collage illustrations, which depict Fred as an amiable, curious character against backdrops that contrast the city and countryside settings. Reminiscent of Aesop's fable The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse, this pleasing picture book offers its own narrative exploring the urban versus rural contrast, as well as an open-ended conclusion.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2017 Booklist"
