Three stories in the series for children just learning to read, featuring naughty Fox. He makes a film starring all the neighbours, gets roped into a magic show, and stars in a spooky play with Carmen and Dexter. And with Fox on stage, trouble is guaranteed.

James Marshall was one of the most prolific and successful author/illustrators of children's books. He was best known for his series on the mischievous exploits of Fox, a debonair, lazy showoff; the uproarious adventures of the two Cut-Ups, Spud and Joe; George and Martha; and the misadventures of the Stupidfamily. He divided his time between an apartment in the Chelsea district of New York and his home in Mansfield Hollow Connecticut.From Kirkus Reviews:
To an adult mourning Marshall's passing, there's a bittersweet irony to these tales of the unquenchable Fox, whose self-confidence lands him in one pickle after another; each cloud that eclipses Fox here has a silver lining. To his friends, Fox's conceited video (``Me, flossing my teeth'') is ``dumb,'' but Grannie Fox and little sister Louise ``just love it''; when, capping a series of disasters, the curtain falls not only on the play he and his friends are putting on but all over the actors too, it's praised as the ``Funniest thing I ever saw''--which is likely to be the intended audience's response to Fox's latest posturings and pratfalls. Marshall's deft way with very simple, very natural, miraculously funny phrases is perfectly matched by the insidiously caricatured animals performing in his proscenium- arch- and TV-screen-shaped frames. There are plenty of delectable details--a crocodile-librarian poised on a tall library ladder; a theatrical ``mummy,'' a pig garbed in toilet paper. And, again, the comically expressive faces are priceless. One more to treasure. (Easy reader. 4-8) -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
