Pax Sara Pennypacker

My daughter loves reading, and I had been wanting to buy her the book “Pax” for a while.  Published in 2016 by Sara Pennypacker, this book has received numerous accolades, becoming a New York Times Bestseller, an Amazon Best Book of the Year, and is also on the National Book Award Longlist.

This book is recommended for grades 4-7 / ages 8-12.  My daughter is 10, and enjoyed this book quite a bit.

I found the book “Pax” in my school library.  It is about a fox and his owner, Peter.  Pax was rescued as a kit, and the story is about how the fox and boy become friends.  The story has a lot of both happy and sad parts, and is great for animal lovers.

There are a few images in the book.  My daughter rarely finds illustrations in the books she reads, so it was special to have a few in Pax.
