Argyle Fox

The soft and detailed illustrations beautifully capture the perfection of both the natural setting, and of the sweetness of the animals of the woods. I love the details like the birch twig flag pole and the little white tea lights that are draped over Argyle's real tree canopy bed.

The curiosity and personality of the animals in the backgrounds, like the beavers surprised eyeballs watching the newspaper folded hat Wooosh away in the wind, to the white tip bushy tail fox checking out his mailbox, display feelings in their expressions during each small moment. 

A cute story of perseverance and patience when you have to change a plan. The narrative serves for a model for picking yourself up and dusting yourself off through the small tangles. Sometimes you cannot control a situation, and if you can unravel what you can  control, you might just find, the best situation for that moment after all.
