Ooko has everything a fox could want: a stick, a leaf and a rock. Well, almost everything . . . Ooko wants someone to play with too! The foxes in town always seem to be playing with their two-legged friends, the Debbies. Maybe if he tries to look like the other foxes, one of the Debbies will play with him too. But when Ooko finally finds his very own Debbie, things don't turn out quite as he had expected!
A quirky, funny, charmingly illustrated story about finding friendship and being true to yourself.

 

Review:

“Ooko” is an adorable picture book about a fox learning the beauty of just being yourself.  The simple wording and quirky illustrations will keep children both young and old entertained.  I found myself laughing out loud at Ooko’s sense of humor and little bit of sass.  Highly recommended!
