Descrizione

Mo lives on Fox Street with her dad and little sister, the Wild Child. Their house is in the middle of the block - right where a heart would be, if the street were a person. Fox Street has everything: a piano player, a fix-it man, the city's best burrito makers, a woman who cuts Mo's hair just right, not to mention a certain boy who wants to teach her how to skateboard. There's even a mean, spooky old lady, if ringing doorbells and running away, or leaving dead mice in mailboxes, is your idea of fun. Summers are Mo's favorite time, because her best friend, Mercedes, comes to stay.

Most important, though, Fox Street is where all Mo's memories of her mother live. The idea of anything changing on Fox Street is unimaginable - until it isn't.

This is the story of one unforgettable summer - a summer of alarming letters, mysterious errands, and surprising revelations - and how a tuft of bright red fur gives Mo the courage she needs.

"What happened on Fox Street? Love, belief and caring." - Kirkus, starred review.

"A sensory rich, action-packed narrative. Mo is a character readers will root for." - The Horn Book, starred review

    One of the most perfect children's chapter books I've read in a long time. I knew immediately from the very beginning of the story, that I was going to love this. The author paints such an accurate touching perspective of childhood, honing in on the anxiety that comes with growing up and watching the world open up around you as you start to understand things more. Sweet simplicity starts to slip away...

    Beautifully written, sweet, spunky, funny. I loved it.

    The author does a particularly fine job of capturing a child's perspective of the street you live on being the whole world.

    Mo Wren (not moron) lives on a cul-de-sac, Fox Street., with her widower father and her wild little sister Dottie. It's a street where everyone looks out for one another (for the most part). They are a quirky diverse group living between a ravine, which Mo loves and is sure is a home to foxes, and Paradise Avenue, home of the Tip Top Club. A slightly low rent area.Mo's father says she thinks too much, and we see how she puzzles over the many responsibilities and changes that fill her life. She's got to take care of her sister and at times it's just too much. Her best friend Is Mercedes who comes each summer to stay with her grandma across the street. This year it's different as Mercedes mother got married which is making for big changes for Mercedes.The writing and imagery make this a charming and readable book. I'd say 3rd grade girls would be the prime audience. The characters are quite believable and the conflicts not too stressful.

    Mo Wren has lived on Fox Street all of her life. In Mo's opinion, Fox Street has almost everything you could want . . . except for other girls, and foxes. Mo's best friend Mercedes lives on Fox Street only in the summer, when she visits her grandmother. And despite Mo's careful observation of the wildlife in the ravine at the end of the street, she's never seen a fox there. She hasn't given up hope, though. Mo can't imagine living anywhere other than Fox Street. Then, one summer, everything changes. Mercedes, courtesy of a despised new stepfather's money, starts dressing stylishly and talking about how her grandmother should move somewhere closer to the rest of her family. Mo's little sister Dottie is growing up, and getting wilder every day. One of the dreaded Baggot boys starts seeming oddly appealing to Mo -- well, that change may not be so bad, really. The worst change, though, is that Mo's father, despairing over his miserable job with the city utilities department and still mourning the loss of Mo's mother, gets an offer from a lawyer who wants to purchase the little house on Fox street. Then, Mo finds a tiny bit of fur snagged on a bramble in the ravine -- reddish orange fur, just the color of a fox's coat. How can Mo even think of leaving Fox street, just when she's finally found the sign she's been looking for? Can she talk her father into keeping the house? Even if she stays, will things stay the same, or is change inevitable?This lovely little book is about dealing with change. It also touches on responsibility, friendship, and the ties that hold a family together. Mo is delightful, and all of the characters are beautifully realized, with all of their flaws, quirks, and moments of grace and humor. Highly recommended.
