My Fox Ate My Alarm Clock by author David Blaze is a super cute book that children are sure to enjoy. The story revolves around Joe, a young boy who has become friends with a talking fox. The fox has quite a personality, and the connection between Joe and Fox is funny and oftentimes sweet. Fox falls ill during the course of the story and, once recovered, more problems seem to arise for the pair. As expected, a talking fox has not only a cool backstory, but also (and unfortunately) some bad guy enemies. The book ends in a nail-biting climax before a bittersweet ending that kept even this adult reader riveted the entire time.
While children will enjoy My Fox Ate My Alarm Clock for the humor and imagination of the tale, adults will value the lessons of friendship and doing the right thing. Also, the book features a diverse character list and an honest and thoughtful protagonist, which makes the book more realistic and drives the themes of the story home. I was most delighted in the unselfishness of Joe, particularly at the end of the story, but at no point were his attributes forced. He was simply a good kid with a normal albeit unique life. Author David Blaze did a superb job writing on a child’s level and staying on plot throughout the story, making this book a pleasure to read. I recommend the book for all young readers and know it will be a valuable addition to any children’s library.
