Fox by Margaret Wild is a story about a dog and a bird with disabilities. They become friends and help each other until a jealous fox enters the story to teach them a lesson about what it's truly like to be alone.
This is a story about friendship and betrayal. It's quite dark and is best suited for older children that can cope with the abrupt ending and powerful message.
It's thought-provoking and a good discussion book for groups.
Update: After the first time reading this I rated it 3 stars because I didn't really like the abrupt ending, but it sends an important message that doesn't take children long to figure out. Another aspect that I had a hard time with was the story's text which is sketched and scattered all around the pages and difficult for kids to read at times. I loved the sketched illustrations by Ron Brooks.
My personal opinion is that this is a book that's best read to children by a teacher or parent which eliminates the issue with the text and allows discussion after.
