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.

Not for kids!

Note: this is a review for parents... spoiler alert if you don't want too much information!!
Somehow from the description of this book I thought it would be a good listen for my 7 year old son. He was definitely drawn into the narrative and was really enjoying the story. But animals die mid-way, and the ending, while not a disaster, sent him into tears. Not as bad as Old Yeller, but you get the idea. A beautiful story. Just not for little kids!
