" Beautiful illustrations. Winner of Japan's Picture Book Award. " said.

"In this odd--and I like odd, by the way--and appealing picture book originally published in Japan, two youngsters return to the park where the older sibling, Roxie, left her jump rope. To her surprise, she and her brother Lukie find that the rope is being used--not by several other children but by some young foxes. The children watch the foxes as they keep tripping over their tails, and then Roxie teaches them how to jump just right and keep those tails up in the air. Although Roxie knows full well that the rope is hers, she lets a fox keep it with the promise that they will jump rope again sometime. Her kindness and compassion are evident in her every action and comment, and in the tender way she treats her brother, even allowing him to get his wish. Winner of the Japan Picture Book Award, this book contains almost magical illustrations with paper, acrylic gouache, oil pencil, and ballpoint pen. The images capture perfectly the innocence of childhood and the bond between new friends as well as a brother and a sister. This one will keep tickling at your senses and at your imagination, maybe even your heart, long after you've closed it. " said.

" A fox and a girl, both named Roxie, both have fun jumping rope. " said.

" A sweet fantasy story involving a bother and sister, foxes, and a jump rope. " said.

" This story is very sweet and magical. I love the illustrations! " said.

" Whimsical story of a little girl and a fox that share the same name and love for a jump rope. " said.

" Roxie and Lukie set out to find Roxie's lost jump rope and learn that sometimes preserving a little magic and making the wishes of others come true is more important than telling the truth. " said.

" Beautiful, very beautiful, illustrations. " said.
