Mr. Fox never smiles. He reads. He shops. He eats, but he never smiles. Big Whoop! by Maxine Lee is the tale of a curmudgeonly fox whose friends try increasingly grand gestures to capture his attention. Their attempts range from a trip to the zoo to walking the moon on stilts made of cheese! But Mr. Fox says only, "Big Whoop!" Will his friends ever pry a smile from his lips?
Author/illustrator Maxine Lee's bold colors and whimsical illustrations, in the vein of Oliver Jeffers, draw readers into this amusing story of perseverance and friendship. This book -- rife with silly scenarios and humorous drawings -- is a perfect read-aloud for ages 4 to 7, sure to elicit laughs.
Maxine Lee was born in Liverpool, Merseyside, where she still lives with her partner and their two boys. She taught a range of creative subjects before taking a step back to concentrate on her career as an author/illustrator. Caterpillar Books in the U.K. published her debut children's book, Pi-Rat, in August 2013.
