For those who love stories about animal and human relationships, Pax is told through alternating perspectives of a boy and his pet fox during a fictional time of war. Sara Pennypacker leads the reader on a journey of love and loss, tragedy and triumph, independence and reliance. Most important for me, Peter and Pax learn to recognize and accept help along each of their paths of self-discovery. Pax is a beautifully told and exceptionally researched story of friendship.
