My Fox Ate My Cake by David Blaze is a beautiful story for young readers — and adults who are children at heart, like me. Meet Jonah Johnson and his best friend, a fox. The fox seems to be the best friend Jonah has, the only one he seems to get along with so perfectly. But there is a problem. Jonah gets into all sorts of problems since the day he met the talking fox. But this time, it’s the fox who is in trouble. It’s been captured by the most dreaded person in school — the school bully himself. This time, it’s Jonah’s chance to show loyalty to his best friend, but can he stand up to the bully?
Characters like Jonah, Shane the bully, Melissa, who is empathetic, Dana, who is courageous and stands up to the bully, and others are really memorable and well-developed. There are many dramatic moments in this tale and I loved how Dana takes Shane down. Her words of triumph are hilarious. The themes of friendship, bullying, and self-confidence are masterfully explored in this book and it is no doubt that young readers will have a lot to learn from it. The prose is beautiful and the author’s narrative is perfect and very accessible to readers of all ages. The setting is a great environment where kids learn and grow, and at times do this the hard way. My Fox Ate My Cake is an entertaining read and David Blaze is joining my list of favorite children's authors.
