Fox Is Late

illustrated by Corey R. Tabor

About the Book

Fun-loving, mischievous Fox is late for lunch, so he hops on his skateboard. Go, Fox, go!

What is this winning trickster character doing, zooming over and under and around on his skateboard? His animal friends follow him home to find out—and get a big surprise!

Fox Is Late is a My First I Can Read book, which means it’s perfect for shared reading with a child. Other Fox books include: Fox the Tiger, Fox and the Jumping Contest, and Fox and the Bike Ride.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

PRAISE FOR FOX AND THE JUMPING CONTEST:  “The text is drily witty, and the comical illustrations, rendered in pencils, watercolors, and ink and assembled digitally, are energetic and appealing. Kids may want to have jumping contests of their own after reading this-just omit jetpacks.” —Kirkus Reviews

PRAISE FOR FOX AND THE JUMPING CONTEST: “Tabor’s picture-book debut doesn’t carry a lesson per se, but it does have plenty of laughs and utterly sweet illustrations. While Fox’s friends aren’t pleased to learn about his scheme, things (mostly) work out in the end.” —Booklist
