Description-

  • From bestselling and award-winning author Sara Pennypacker comes the long-awaited sequel to Pax; this is a gorgeously crafted, utterly compelling novel about chosen families and the healing power of love.

    It's been a year since Peter and his pet fox, Pax, have seen each other. Once inseparable, they now lead very different lives.

    Pax and his mate, Bristle, have welcomed a litter of kits they must protect in a dangerous world. Meanwhile Peter—newly orphaned after the war, racked with guilt and loneliness—leaves his adopted home with Vola to join the Water Warriors, a group of people determined to heal the land from the scars of the war.

    When one of Pax's kits falls desperately ill, he turns to the one human he knows he can trust. And no matter how hard Peter tries to harden his broken heart, love keeps finding a way in. Now both boy and fox find themselves on journeys toward home, healing—and each other, once again.

    As he did for Pax, Jon Klassen, New York Times bestseller, Caldecott medalist, and two-time Caldecott Honoree, has created stunning jacket and interior illustrations.

    July 15, 2021
    Boy and fox follow separate paths in postwar rebuilding. A year after Peter finds refuge with former soldier Vola, he prepares to leave to return to his childhood home. He plans to join the Junior Water Warriors, young people repurposing the machines and structures of war to reclaim reservoirs and rivers poisoned in the conflict, and then to set out on his own to live apart from others. At 13, Peter is competent and self-contained. Vola marvels at the construction of the floor of the cabin he's built on her land, but the losses he's sustained have left a mark. He imposes a penance on himself, reimagining the story of rescuing the orphaned kit Pax as one in which he follows his father's counsel to kill the animal before he could form a connection. He thinks of his heart as having a stone inside it. Pax, meanwhile, has fathered three kits who claim his attention and devotion. Alternating chapters from the fox's point of view demonstrate Pax's care for his family--his mate, Bristle; her brother; and the three kits. Pax becomes especially attached to his daughter, who accompanies him on a journey that intersects with Peter's and allows Peter to not only redeem his past, but imagine a future. This is a deftly nuanced look at the fragility and strength of the human heart. All the human characters read as White. Illustrations not seen. An impressive sequel. (Fiction. 10-14)

    Grades 4-7 A year after Peter and his pet fox, Pax, separated, Pax has taken to his wilder life and started a family, while Peter struggles to figure out what "family" even means. After losing Pax and others to the terrible war, he's determined to live a life of solitude, free from attachment. Peter joins the Water Warriors, a group working to repair the war's ecological damage, and heads for the place he used to call home. When that same ecological contamination sickens Pax's daughter, the fox realizes he must find the one human he can trust to heal his pup--and maybe that boy can find a way to heal himself in the process. It's easy to fall back into Pax and Peter's engrossing world, the story again told through alternating fox and human viewpoints, smoothly woven into a compelling whole. The stakes feel higher this time, the pain deeper, making for a worthy sequel and a heartbreaking and beautifully life-affirming exploration of the concepts of home, family, and the love that makes it all worthwhile.

  • Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "This is a deftly nuanced look at the fragility and strength of the human heart. An impressive sequel."
  • Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "The book's message is most simply put by Pax when he tells his kit that "after loving, you are afraid," but it is still worth it. It's a hard heart that will keep the tears away for this one, so have plenty of tissues nearby."
