PAX, by Sara Pennypacker


The story: Dad’s going off to war, Peter’s going to his grandfather’s, and Pax is abandoned by the side of the road. Peter raised the fox from a kit, and he knows Pax doesn’t have the skills to survive in the wild on his own–and once Dad leaves, Peter does too. He’s on the run, determined to cover the 300 miles to the place where they left Pax and rescue his beloved pet. But war and nature have other plans, and without help from unexpected places, Peter will never be able to complete the journey on his own.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: If you’re a fan of animal stories like Katherine Applegate’s “The One and Only Ivan” or Michael Morpurgo’s “War Horse”, you need to grab this one!
