Arriving from her Florida home, Fritzi Fox turns down every suggestion for fun and instead unpacks seaweed, butterflies, a blue lagoon, and a combo/mambo group, transforming her young hostess's room into a tropical paradise.

PreSchool-Grade 2?When Fritzi Fox flies in from Florida to spend the night at the house of friends in the snowy north, the child in the family thinks there may be some excitement. But their guest seems very subdued. Fritzi won't dance or sing, she eats little, and then goes to bed early. In the dark bedroom that they share, however, like a modern Mary Poppins, she opens her magical trunk, and out come a brilliant sun, sand dunes, monkeys, tropical birds, ocean waves, and other glories from her home state. Fritzi herself vitalizes into a mambo-dancing night clubber, and the evening brims with action and color. Thrilled by these visions, the fox child eagerly anticipates seeing Florida for herself someday. The clever rhymed text, vivid and humorous, is enhanced by Hurd's bold, watercolor cartoons. With the dynamic interplay of print and illustration, the single-and double-page spreads are full of life and fun. A high-flying fanciful adventure.?Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA
