Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The endearing duo from Fox & Chick: The Party (2018) returns here in three brief adventures. In the title story, Fox's relaxing boat ride is disrupted by Chick's constant questions and fears. ""Chocolate Cake"" finds Chick afraid to open his cake from Fox because he knows eating it all will make him sick. And, in ""Sunrise,"" the pair misses the event because Chick can't get his act together. Combining graphic-novel and easy-reader formats, Ruzzier provides emerging readers with satisfying, well-defined characters; relatable experiences; and solutions that never scapegoat. Chick's insecurities are at the crux of most of the conflicts, but Fox always finds a way to accept his behaviors and engineer fixes that are agreeable to both. The illustrations, rendered through pen, ink, and watercolor, favor pastel shades well suited to the exterior calm projected in these narratives. Humorous illustrative details (snarling pirates imagined by Chick, and Chick kissing the ground after his ""stressful"" boat ride) add depth to the tales as well. Simple yet sophisticated, this makes an ideal choice for beginning readers.--Kay Weisman Copyright 2019 Booklist"
