They go along, and fox thinks he sees another fox in the water. The fox scares Bramble. He calls him a very rude fox and begins getting very loud. He goes back to tell Twig about the rude fox. Twig tells Bramble they should ask the fox why he’s upset. He comes back, and the fox in the water has disappeared. Bramble is so upset until the moon peeks out and he sees the fox again. He tells the fox, “Let’s be friends.” What do you think the other fox is going to say?
The writing was average in this book. I enjoyed it, but it did not wow me. I would have liked to see a little more depth of words and attention to the flow. I did not love the plot; it was too predictable, even for kids.
The illustrations were okay. It seemed like each panel pretty much had the same background. I would have liked to see more variety in the pictures. However, the animal characters were well done.
My kids, three and six, liked the book okay, but it was not one they wished to read again. I would recommend this book for ages five to seven.
