Once separated, it is his only wish to reunite with Pax. He is driven forward by love, loyalty, and a desire to do what he feels he needs to do to make himself whole.

  Alternating chapters from the perspectives of boy and fox are perfectly paced and complementary. Only Peter, Pax, Vola, and three of Pax’s fox companions are named, conferring a spare, fablelike quality. Every moment in the graceful, fluid narrative is believable.
