Book Review – Pax by Sara Pennypacker…

A moving story of the extraordinary friendship between a boy and his fox, and their epic journey to be reunited. Beautifully illustrated by multi-award winner, Jon Klassen. Pax was only a kit when his family was killed and he was rescued by ‘his boy’, Peter. Now the country is at war and when his father enlists, Peter has no choice but to move in with his grandfather. Far worse than leaving home is the fact that he has to leave Pax behind. But before Peter spends even one night under his grandfather’s roof he sneaks out into the night, determined to find his beloved friend. This is the story of Peter, Pax, and their journeys back to each other as war rampages throughout the country. 
I have been given an ARC by Netgalley in return for a fair and honest review.
I have a deep love for any story that has an animal as one of the protagonists. This book was no exception.
This story takes your emotions, spins them round, pulls them apart then heals them again.
A stunning book.
A five out of five star read.
I am profoundly grateful to Netgalley and HarperCollins UK for my copy.
