REVIEWED BY JACOB, SECOND GRADE, MISSOURI, USA

Fox and His Friends series by Edward Marshall, illustrated by James Marshall, Penguin Young Readers Group, ISBN 9780140370072

Jacob reviewed his own copy of this book.

Have you ever read a book that is funny and has some sad parts but more good parts? Good. You came to the right place because this book series has bad cooks and basic ones. And you do not have to read the books in order. The series is Fox and Friends by Edward Marshall and James Marshall.

In one of the books he gets in a race. He crashes in a garden so he has to fix it himself. And he gets sad about crashing into a garden. Then he broke his bike so he has to get a job, so he gets one …

My first reason I like this book is because Fox is funny. In the story he threw his tunafish sandwich away, but then he got hungry. It is so funny. My second reason I like these books is because they are not that long. You can read one in one day. My third reason is you don’t have to read the books in order.

I hope you get these books right away. I give it ten stars. I think this book is for ages 7 and up.
