KIRKUS REVIEW

 When Sonia sees the pointy-nosed creature making a strange noise in the garden, she decides--with a delicious thrill--that it's a wolf. Not so, she later concludes, but a friendly fox, rather like the plastic prize in her cereal. Pank's disarming text is nicely in tune with children's imagination and concerns; her accompanying pen-and-watercolor illustrations have a pleasingly whimsical grasp of reality, with Sonia and her baby brother--and their lovely English garden--especially well drawn. A promising debut. (Picture book. 3-8)
