Reception[ edit ]

Kirkus Reviews , in a starred review of Flossie & the Fox, wrote “Isadora’s watercolor, ink and pencil illustrations fully realize the spirit of the text, with Flossie’s sturdy, self-reliant stance and the fox growing progressively more tentative and defensive. Mellow green, lemon, rust and earth tones fill a safe, sun-dappled world.” and called it “A perfect picture book” [1] School Library Journal wrote “The language is true, and the illustrations are marvelously complementary in their interpretation of the events. This spirited little girl will capture readers from the beginning, and they’ll adore her by the end of this delightful story.” [2]

Flossie & the Fox has also been reviewed by BookList , [3] and Publishers Weekly . [4]

It is a 1986 Horn Book Fanfare Book , [5]
