Pax is the story of the unbreakable bond between a boy and his pet fox. It is filled with excitement, adventure, loyalty, and hope, making it an excellent option for both adventure lovers and animal lovers (provided they can tolerate the more emotionally challenging moments/content). It is told from the perspective of both Peter (the boy) and Pax (the fox), alternating narrators with each chapter. Peter's side of the plot develops slowly and may even feel a bit shallow at first, but the adventures provided by Pax's side of the story keep the book moving along sufficiently well. The heart of the story is full of emotion and adventure, eventually developing into a story you "just can't put down." By the end of it, you find yourself so emotionally invested that animal lovers may even get a little misty eyed by the bittersweet final plot twist. I would definitely recommended this to anyone looking for an emotionally-charged, adventure-filled middle grade fiction book.
