Publisher's Summary

Pax and Peter have been inseparable ever since Peter rescued him as a kit. But one day the unimaginable happens: Peter's dad enlists in the military and makes him return the fox to the wild.
At his grandfather's house 300 miles away from home, Peter knows he isn't where he should be - with Pax. He strikes out on his own despite the encroaching war, spurred by love, loyalty, and grief, to be reunited with his fox.
Meanwhile Pax, steadfastly waiting for his boy, embarks on adventures and discoveries of his own....
From best-selling and award-winning author Sara Pennypacker comes a beautifully wrought, utterly compelling novel about the essential truths that define us and the devastating costs of war. Pax is destined to become a beloved classic.

Great story,excellent performance

My two boys and I loved this story and could not put it down. It leaves the listener with much to ponder about how we treat each other and how we treat nature.

Pax needs to be included in MS & HS curricula

What did you love best about Pax?

The poetic storytelling that connects humans and animals and packs a lot of metaphor and relatable content into one tale.

What about Michael Curran-Dorsano’s performance did you like?

I loved everything about the narrator's performance because his tone, cadence and accents felt "warm" and familiar to me.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Many moments moved me and kept me wanting more but certainly the bittersweet end moved me to tears and evoked some powerful feelings about compassion, love, loss and letting go.

Any additional comments?

I will hold Pax and his boy Peter in my heart forever. This audiobook is merely a little over 5 hours long, yet, it managed to leave its imprint in my heart and memory. It's a rare thing when a book will do that to you. Diablomon!!
