Aki and the Fox

by Akiko Hayashi

Published by Doubleday, 1991
40 pages
ISBN: 0-385-41947-3

Ages 3-6

Kon the stuffed fox has been Aki's constant companion since she was a baby and now that Aki's almost old enough to go to school, poor Kon is getting pretty ragged. When a seam splits on Kon's arm, Aki decides that it's time for a trip to Grandma's house for a repair job, so the two set out on a journey by train. An appealing picture-book adventure combines realistic details of life in contemporary urban Japan with a whimsical world in which a stuffed animal not only talks, he assumes the role of adult care-giver.
