“Whilst it’ll tug mightily at the heartstrings, this story of a fox and his boy owner could also be a significant story of loyalty, love, and the consequences of war written for a mature middle grade audience.” – Seira Wilson, Amazon Editor
National Book Award Longlist * New York Times Bestseller * An Amazon Best Book of the Year
From bestselling and award-winning writer Sara Pennypacker comes a beautifully wrought, utterly compelling novel about the powerful relationship between a boy and his fox. Pax is destined to develop into a classic, beloved for generations to come.
Pax and Peter have been inseparable ever since Peter rescued him as a kit. But in the future, the inconceivable happens: Peter’s dad enlists in the military and makes him return the fox to the wild.
At his grandfather’s house, three hundred miles away from home, Peter knows he is not where he must be—with Pax. He strikes out on his own in spite of the encroaching war, spurred by love, loyalty, and grief, to be reunited with his fox.
Meanwhile Pax, steadfastly waiting for his boy, embarks on adventures and discoveries of his own. . . .
