    One thought on “A Pig, a Fox, and a Box

    1. Joan

      This is a 2016 Geisel Honor title. It well deserves it. It is very simple in terms of vocabulary but with a fairly complicated story line. A fox too clever for his own good combined with a patient kind pig who only shows some frustration at one point, nothing harsher than that. Of course, all ends reasonably well, with them still friends. However, it does also show logical consequences in the final few illustrations of Fox. I'm glad to see a Geisel that is in regular reader format rather than pi [...]

      3 separate sections that build on each other. Still has lots of repetition, but with longer sentences and more interesting words. The layout is clear and the speech balloons remind me of Elephant & Piggie. Illustrations reinforce the concepts and plot very well. 2016 Geisel Honor

    3. Cheryl

      Nothing like Mo Willems. More like 'Cat on a Mat' for fans of the Three Stooges. Way more detail in the drawings, which Willems doesn't need because he's got talent. Stilted prose. No detail in the typeface, which Willems doesn't need but effectively plays with. Way less affection, wit, and wisdom. Stupid pig keeps committing grave harm against almost as stupid but also 'accident-prone' fox.If your child loves this, watch out for the possibility that he develops an interest in pulling the wings [...]

      The fox is little, the pig is big and they are friends. But the fox likes to play tricks which always seem to backfire. This early reader has simple words, funny illustrations and a great storyline. Cross posted to kissthebook CHECK IT OUT!

    5. Lorna

      A great addition to the easy-reader world. The humor and friendship between Pig and Fox will make this a hit with fans of Mo Willems' Elephant and Piggie books.

The plot of the story is about two friends who are Pig and Fox. During the story Fox plays all of these tricks on Pig and Pig always falls for it. However, Fox’s plans start of backfire on him. This book provides some comedy and also gives a large about of rhyming with small learning words. Furthermore, the amount of rhyming and repetition would be great for young [...]

    7. Kelly Kneisler

      This book is a Penguin Young Readers, Level 2 (progressing reader) This is a cute book that has three parts, almost like chapters. This would be a good book for story time. Few, simple words, comic book style and cute characters. A great way to introduce easy readers concepts to caregivers and kids.

    8. Deven

      Fox is small, and pig is big. This leads to some interesting situations for the two friends. I liked the rhymes and storytelling, and the way the illustrations flow. I would recommend this book for ages 6+.

    9. Stephanie Moran

      Loved that this book showed the Guided Reading Level specifically on the back. It was rated an "H" level but my son who is working toward "E" level read this book with only a few hiccups. Great book with repetitive familiar words. Silly story line. Love these back to basics books!

    10. ObsessedReader

      I read this to my little brother, and we both laughed out loud. I have read it to him at least 100 times now. READ IMMEDIATELY!!! A 🐷, a 🦊, and a 📦.

      I found A Pig, A Fox and A Box by Jonathan Fenske on the ALA (American Library Association). It won the Theodore Suess Geisel Honor Award in 2016.This story is split into three separate sections that go along with each other. The stories main characters are a pig and a fox. The fox is sneaky and tries to trick the Pig. However at the end of the book the fox has learned his ways weren’t working. The words are written in speech balloons, which can be more fun for students to read because it’s [...]

      Pig and Fox are friends, but that Fox is sneaky! He wants to trick Pig, but innocence is bliss and the pig just doesn't have any real problems. Simple, easy story for emergent readers.I bought this book for my school library because it was recognized as a Geisel award book. What a terrific find! I loved this book AND this author. The book reminds me of "Elephant and Piggie" books. Emergent readers need THIS type of controlled vocabulary reading! I quickly checked out some of Fenske's other publi [...]

    15. Merissa Leonard

      This children’s book is about a fox that continues to trick a pig until the pig no longer falls for it. This book has simple illustrations and personally I was not a fan of this book. Although it is for beginning readers I felt it was too simple and not all that interesting. I believe many young readers would love this book and think it is hilarious; I just did not connect with it in any way. It reminds me a lot of the boy who cried wolf because the fox keeps tricking the pig. I feel like the [...]

    16. Alyx Chamberlain

      While this book has a very basic plot it has the potential to be silly and funny to smaller children. It has very simple vocabulary so it is most definitely intended for beginning readers. However, it still has value! There's definitely a lesson here, pretty similar to the story of the boy who cried wolf.Fox likes to trick Pig, he thinks he is so sneaky and pig seems to always fall for it. However, when Fox is actually in trouble Pig does not want to be outsmarted yet again and ignores him. I li [...]

    17. Erica Garl

      This short book is a beginner level two reader that uses simple words and repetition to help young children begin to read. The story follows and pig and a fox and their adventures with a cardboard box. This book is a lot like the boy who cried wolf in the sense the the fox keeps tricking the pig and eventually the pig doesn't help and the fox gets more hurt than he ever has. I was not personally a fan of this book because of the amount of violence it has in it and the corresponding intended audi [...]

    18. Emily Sands

      This is a cute little tale about a silly pig and sly fox. The story at first was strange to me because I thought It was weird how they used text boxes to explain and show the conversation that occurred between the fox and the pig. However after finishing the book I felt like it was needed. I think the use of parts within the book were useful. By separating the book into three sections you got to see how damaged the fox became after playing with the pig. Even though I liked the book I thought it [...]
