Book Review

This is an AMAZING book and the best thing for me was wishing I could be Fletcher, the fox

I really enjoyed this book because it is an easy book with fantastic pictures on each page to look at.

At the beginning I was sad because I thought the tree was ill, but then the tree looked though it was alive and moving it was so real!

This is an AMAZING book and the best thing for me was wishing I could be Fletcher, the fox. I tried to imagine what it would be like to be him and read the story over and over again thinking about Fletcher.

I have recommended this story it to my friends because I love listening to it so much. (My big brother Ethan helped me write this review).
