FOX by Caroline Arnold
ANIMALS
Released: Aug. 1, 1996

BOOK REVIEW

CALEB AND KATE by William Steig
Released: Oct. 31, 1977

"No reincarnation of Sylvester despite the similar transformation, this plain frontier couple is touching in its own frumpy way, and this amusing sad story is beguiling as only Steig can make it."

FOX EVIL by Minette Walters
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: May 12, 2003

"Those images nearly compensate for a plot that Walters (Acid Row, 2002, etc.) wraps up more with a dispiritingly mundane air."
