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.

A profound and moving story with stunning illustrations by award-winning illustrator, Jon Klassen, ‘Pax' is destined to become a classic in the vein of ‘Charlotte's Web' and ‘Watership Down'.

WRITE A REVIEW

PAX a literary triumph for all ages

5

My 12 year old son found this really engaging, as did I. We had to take turns reading it! A brilliantly well-written work appealing to YA or adult audience. Poignant story with alternate chapters written from the perspective of the boy and his fox, as they try to reunite with each other through many trials and tribulations.
