Fox 8 has always been known as the daydreamer in his pack, the one his fellow foxes regarded with a knowing snort and a roll of the eyes. That is, until Fox 8 develops a unique skill: He teaches himself to speak "Yuman" by hiding in the bushes outside a house and listening to children's bedtime stories. The power of language fuels his abundant curiosity about people--even after "danjur" arrives in the form of a new shopping mall that cuts off his food supply, sending Fox 8 on a harrowing quest to help save his pack.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "This charming story from George Saunders follows a fox named Fox 8 as he teaches himself to speak the human language (known as "Yuman") by listening intently outside of their windows while children are told bedtime stories. But when a development plan for a new shopping mall threatens the food supply, Fox 8 must work to help his pack. As a narrator of his own work, Saunders hands in a reading that is straightforward and wonderfully underplayed. His tone has a youthful quality about it, and his narration is confident, making the story all the more endearing. A standout audiobook that will please listeners of all ages-from the youngest to the oldest members of any pack. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
