Pax by Sara Pennypacker is the story of a twelve-year-old boy and his pet fox, separated by an impending war. Through the alternating viewpoints of Peter and Pax, we learn how they came to be inseparable and what they will do to be reunited.
Pax is a profound story and beautifully written. Although it has sad parts, it did not make me cry. Larrabee read it first and then lent it to me, but I wish we’d read it aloud together because it raises important issues about doing the right thing and discovering your own truth.
Sara Pennypacker was interviewed about Pax on NPR.
Thank you to Tom and Aymara for the excellent gift!
