Description


Fox loves surprises! When she discovers Goose and Bear making gifts, she hopes that one of the presents is for her. But what if it isn't? Even though hope may turn to disappointment, nothing can stop Fox from making her own spectacular surprise for Goose and Bear. In the end, Fox is overjoyed to find she hasn't been forgotten after all. With her trademark simplicity and humor, Suzanne Bloom shows children once again what it means to be a true friend with this new and utterly charming Goose and Bear—and Fox!—story.

Praise For…


"Short sentences and pastel spreads create what's sure to become storytime favorite. The rich indigo skies brilliantly balance the white textures of Bear's fur and Goose's feathers, as well as Fox's russet coat. The kit's bouncy poses and confetti-colored gifts and wrappings add to this festive read." —School Library Journal

". . . Exuberant pastel illustrations with loose, scratchy textures stand out against brilliant , royal-blue backgrounds with the text set in white. This one has 'read it again' potential, and Fox has the makings of a star." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
