Opening and Synopsis 

Opening – “Bogo the fox lived in the branches of a great big tree.

This is quite unusual for a fox, but he was a very curious fox and from up there he could see everything much better.”

Synopsisfrom Publisher

“Bogo watched many animals around him. Some of them were so incredible that they made him feel less special.

One day he decided to invent amazing things so that he could have everything he wanted.A pair of wings to fly like a bird. It never worked.A pair of night glasses to see like an owl. It never worked . . .”

What I Thought

This is a fabulous book celebrating individuality.

Bogo is a lovable character who wants to be special and doesn’t give up.

Well, he does, but that ends up being the turning point of the book where he realizes how special he is by himself.

Isern’s writing has qualities kids will love – there are repeated phrases and everyone feels like they know a Bogo.

Wimmer’s illustrations go with the writing marvelously – they create that sense of whimsy.

I really like the variety of animals – and the fact that they wear old-style clothing! This is a wonderful story, and I think kids will enjoy having this read to them!
