    1. About halfway through this picture book readers with a biblical background will understand that all the animals are heading to Noah's Ark to beat the rain. The story is good, a new presentation of the traditional story from the fox's angle, but it's Reid's illustrations that make the book worthy of a 4-star rating. Made from shaped and pressed plasticine on board, the exceptionally well-done animals and landscapes have a distinct three-dimensional feel to them. Private Christian schools will wan [...]

    2. "Night after night, Fox walked alone" That was the way he liked it. Until one day when he stayed up during the day and began to follow, at a safe distance, pairs of animals on their journey. I love this book for several reasons. I love the art, which seems to jump off the page. I enjoyed the rhyme and rhythm of the story. But most of all I love the surprise that slowly unfolds as you continue to read.

    3. A gorgeously illustrated telling of filling Noah's Ark. The characters and scenery are created of clay and vibrantly enhance this adorable version of animals making their way to the ark, helping each other along the way. Beautiful!

    4. I love the plasticine art/illustrations. A very cute view of the story of Noah. A soon-to-be favourite for my toddler, I think!

    5. I did not expect this to be a story about the animals traveling to Noah's boat. I enjoyed the illustrations. The kids had a good time listening and liked to see the various animals.

    6. My five-year-old son picked this book out from the library last week. He liked the fox on the cover. As soon as I saw the animals going two by two, I realized this was a book about Noah's ark. That was about a quarter to a third of the way through the book. After that, both my son and I lost interest. I regained interest at the end, but my son never did. The artwork for this book is spectacular -- Truly the best work I've seen in polymer clay. The story and concept were great. It was the executi [...]

    7. My daughter read this book to me the other night as part of her homework and she kept stopping to point out interesting things in the pictures so I know she loved the art. I also know that she loved the story because she told me later that she had already read the book on the bus but wanted to read it again to me. I thought it was an fresh and interesting way to tell the story of Noah's Ark and was very happy when he found a girl fox waiting on him when he arrived. A very, very nice book overall [...]

    8. I'll be honest, I wanted to read this book because of the fox. I love fox. And I had no idea what it was about until I was reading it with my son. It turns out it's about this fox who follows all the animals to the ark. Reid's illustrations really make the story come alive. If this were a picture book published with "normal" pictures it would be a bit on the boring side, but the way she sculpts all the minute details in a scene show just how much work go into the creation of her books.

    9. I really enjoyed reading this book. The illustrations through out the story were great as well as the text. This story showed that when you have a strong feeling you should follow it and you may just find what you have been looking for. Fox walked alone had me wondering where all the animals were going and what the fox was looking for but on the last page my questions were answered. In my opinion this is a great children’s book with a little bit of a biblical touch.

    10. The illustrations are unique because they are hand-made from plasticine first, then photographed. But what I love most about this book is reading it to my son. You know how kids ask for their favourite book over and over, well, this is the book I gravitate to whenever I get to choose a book for storytime.

    11. This book is an interesting take on the Noah's Ark tale from the perspective of a fox who doesn't realize where he is going until the end of his journey. I liked the Plasticine illustrations which reminded me of painted clay. Children would enjoy all the varied animals found on the pages of this book.

    12. The truth is the illustrations don't do it for me: they show remarkable skill but are perhaps too clever? But the other truth is that this story choked me up! And it's not like I didn't see the plot twists coming! And it's not like I even care for the story being told. So wow. The power of distillation and story-element placement. And having the fox act beyond himself.

    13. This book, by Barbara Reid, has a lot of rhyming words. The fox comes out of his bed and takes you on the kids on an adventure. This book includes social and emotional developmental skills and also provides children with the opportunity to develop empathy for all of the animals and the fox. The fox also develops empathy and self efficacy throughout the story.

    14. When fox awakens one morning he decides something is a bit odd and decides to check it all out. He soon discovers other animals traveling in twos and decides to follow along to see what is happening. Children will love the colorful pictures that accompany this retelling of Noah’s ark from the view point of a fox!

    16. Amazing pictures! The kids were spellbound by the clay animals as well as the cute, rhyming text. I think we have just found a new favorite at our house. It will be one of those books that my son runs to when he spots it at the library.

    17. Great illustrations of animals and a nice rhythmic text. My only minor concern is that the animals are all headed to Noah's Ark- so if you have any concerns about extremely mild Christian reference then you should skip it

    18. This book surprised me in the end when it turned out to book a book about Noah and the Arc. I liked the twist and different view point. The pictures are not traditional, and makes the story more interesting.

    20. The illustrations keep small people looking closely at them. Barbara Reid's sculpting genius is evident. This story is written in rhyme and arrives at the conclusion (Noah's ark) after a rambling mystery. An excellent book for practicing the skill of inferring.

    21. Gorgeous plasticine illustrations. The story was OK, but I wasn't really sure why this was an IBBY Honour List 2008 book, as it did not really seem to reflect anything about the country where the book was from (Canada).
