I listened to the audiobook, read by the author, and found it utterly charming, moving, and thoughtful. Fox 8 is a young fox, who listens in every night as a woman reads to her children, and learns to speak “Yuman”. When developers cut down his wood, Fox 8 comes to know the Yumans much better than he would have liked. It’s a really beautiful story, only short, and great for children, but it has a lot of deep truths for all of us. It’s sad, very funny, and will stay with me.

We welcome three new members onto the rrlreads review team who will contribute reviews over the next 6 months.
Ariba : My best books are from “Pug Series” but I enjoy adventurous books too. In my free time I love to watch movies.
Kate : My love is non-fiction, especially memoirs narrated by the author (Magda Szubanski and Moby narrate their memoirs just as brilliantly as Luisa). With a seven year old (who especially LOVES books) I can do children’s picture books and I myself have been getting into a lot of young adult fiction while wondering what I had to read when a young adult myself!
Renee : I read widely but the majority of the books are commercial fiction. I tend to use the Borrowbox app for audiobooks and some ebooks more than reading paperbacks. I also review the middle-grade fiction books I read to my kids as bedtime stories.
We look forward to reading their reviews!

Our reviewers are:
Caitlin: I like reading contemporary novels, craft books, cook books, young adult fiction and as a mum of two small children I read a lot of picture books too!
Bethany : I love to download eAudiobooks to listen to as I go to sleep. I love funny and magical books.
Flynn: I like reading books that are funny and scary like the ones that are written by Roald Dahl. I also like reading books that have adventures like Geronimo Stilton books and sometimes l like reading my picture books because I love books that have rhymes and pictures like The Very Cranky Bear by Nick Bland. Reading is good at night because it helps me go to sleep.
