KIRKUS REVIEW

In his sixth appearance, Fox is still amusingly ridiculous and recognizably human. When he wrecks his bike showing off to an admiring crowd, he assumes Mom will buy him a new one--but she's smarter than that: "I'm not made of money," she points out, and suggests a job. "Louise, dear," he says to his sister, but she knows him well: "I'll scream!" His jobs are, predictably, disasters, till the somewhat tame conclusion: he draws a crowd by demonstrating a bed in a show window, sound asleep. Marshall's comic illustrations, situations, and well-phrased text are sure to keep them reading.
