I have read Pax aloud to my classes three years in a row now. Every single time it destroys me! Peter and Pax will get into your heart in the most unexpected way. My students get so invested in their journey that they are emotional right along with me. War, anxiety, loneliness, death, and survival. They get through it all because of one another. I cannot praise this story enough. It has become apart of me and my students. We still talk about how much we love Pax, Peter, Vola, Vixen, Runt, and Grey!

“Sometimes the apple rolls very far from the tree.”


From bestselling and award-winning author Sara Pennypacker comes a beautifully wrought, utterly compelling novel about the powerful relationship between a boy and his fox. Pax is destined to become a classic, beloved for generations to come.

Pax and Peter have been inseparable ever since Peter rescued him as a kit. But one day, the unimaginable happens: Peter's dad enlists in the military and makes him return the fox to the wild.

At his grandfather's house, three hundred miles away from home, Peter knows he isn't where he should be—with Pax. He strikes out on his own despite the encroaching war, spurred by love, loyalty, and grief, to be reunited with his fox.

Meanwhile Pax, steadfastly waiting for his boy, embarks on adventures and discoveries of his own. . . .

“Because I am exactly where I should be, doing exactly what I should be doing. That is peace.”
