This entry in the Wild Animal Kingdom series, part of the Bolt line of high/low books, cozies up to the red fox. The interestingly written narrative begins with a Тday in the lifeУ of this creature, which boasts an arresting photo of a fox mid-pounce. Next, readers learn that red foxes inhabit nearly the entire northern hemisphere, rural and urban areas alike, and maintain an omnivorous diet. The remaining two chapters feature descriptive facts about family units, the red fox's contributions to ecosystems, and its predators, humans chief among them. Throughout, numerous color photos and infographics appear, including a sizechart, a pictorial food chain, and a ТBy the NumbersУ spread of vulpine facts. A useful research book for reluctant readers or kids with a keen interest in animals that share their world. Booklist [Sep 2016]
