Under his father's authoritarian gaze, fourteen-year-old Peter reluctantly and tearfully sets his pet fox free in the wilderness. War is coming, and Peter is being sent to live with his grandfather and Pax, despite having lived with Peter for the past seven years, is not welcome. Over the next weeks, as they both determine to find each other again, both boy and fox discover courage and strengths they didn't realize were within them. This was a bittersweet story of love and friendship, set in an unspecified time and place. ( )

Pax is a fox who had been saved by Peter when he was just a kit. They are fast friends and have built a powerful relationship between them. But one day, Peter's father enlists in the war, sends Peter to his grandfather's house, and tells Peter he must let Pax go back to the wild. Three-hundred miles away now, Peter realizes he should be with Pax. So he heads out despite the war raging on. He just wants to be with his friend. Pax and Peter have many adventures as they try to find each. Will they be reunited? ( )

Grieving the loss of his mother Peter discovered an orphaned fox cub and took him in. Ever since then he and Pax have become almost inseparable. But now war is coming. And Peter's father says he can't keep the fox any more, that his grandfather won't tolerate the animal and as Peter's father is joining the army that is where Peter will be. So Pax is abandoned at the side of the road, left to fend for himself.
But at his grandfather's house Peter realises just what it is that he has done, and he can't live with it. He has to go back and find Pax. Even if it is hundreds of miles away.

Pretty cover. Book about a fox I couldn't resist picking this one up.
It lives up to the wonderful Jon Klassen cover [ref]if you haven't heard of him check out his picture books. They're awesome[/ref] in so many ways. Told in alternating chapters, one from Peter's point of view, the next from Pax's we get to learn all about their life before the threats of war. The setting itself feels very American but it is an unnamed, imaginary version of America if that is the case. War isn't something far away here. It is near, and getting closer all the time.
Both Pax and Peter have to learn about that in their own ways.
And both have to learn about independence and come to terms with the realities of the world. Sometimes those are very unpleasant realities, sometimes they show that there is still goodness and kindness out there. It is a beautiful book, but also a heart-wrenching book.
Highly recommended. ( )

Realistic Fiction - Interactions with Animals and Peer Friendships

This book is about Peter and Pax, a boy and a fox, who grew up together until Peter's father left for eh war, forcing Peter to leave Pax in the wild. Peter eventually left home to find Pax but instead, met Vola who was a veteran with PTSD and a strong sense of what it was to have peace. Both Peter and Pax had many adventures and difficult times but in the end, found each other again. At the end of the book, Peter finds Pax but lets him go on living in the wild after he realizes that Pax is better off on his own.

I thought the book was incredible; it had a great plot and storyline while also having many valuable lessons. This would be a good book to teach in upper elementary because it involves growth, lessons, and symbolism that I believe is very important for children to learn and understand.

Pax is a touching book written by Jon Klassen. In his story we follow the life of Peter, a young boy and his pet fox Pax. Our story opens from Pax's perspective, with Peter abandoning Pax on the side of the road. Though Pax does not understand, he knows that he must try and find his human. Later we learn that Peter was forced to leave Pax behind due to a war. Peter soon realizes he made a mistake as well, and sets out too go find Pax. By the end of the book, each had made new friends, and grew in ways they did not know were capable. When they saw each other again, they both knew it would actually be best to go their separate ways. They gave each other a proper goodbye, knowing there would always be a piece of their heart left with the other but ready to move on.

Author's note: Fox communication is a complex system of vocalization, gesture, scent, and expression. The "dialogue" in italics in Pax's chapters attempts to translate their eloquent language.
"The Gulf Stream will flow through a straw, provided the straw is aligned to the Gulf Stream and not at crosscurrents." / "What's that supposed to mean?" / "It means align yourself, boy." / "Align myself?"/ "Figure out how things are, and accept it." (p. 98)
"I have more than everything I need." Vola sat. "I have peace here." / "Because it's so quiet?" / "No. Because I am exactly where I should be, doing exactly what I should be doing. That is peace." (p. 102)
"Rises from the ashes. I know what a phoenix is." / "Right. But out of its own ashes." "... the new bird rises up out of the old bird's ashes. My mother loved that. She said it meant that no matter how bad things got, we could always make ourselves new again." (p. 116-117)
'Two but not two.' "It's a Buddhist concept. Nonduality. It's about oneness, about how things that seem to be separate are really connected to one another. There are no separations. " Vola picked up his fox again. "This is not just a piece of wood. This is also the clouds that brought the rain that watered the tree, and the birds that nested in it and the squirrels that fed on its nuts. It is also the food my grandparents fed me that made me strong enough to cut the tree, and it's the steel in the axe I used. And it's how you know your fox, which allowed you to carve him yesterday. And it's the story you will tell your children when you give this to them. All these things are separate but also one, inseparable." (p. 186-187)
