9781939100092: Argyle Fox

Argyle Fox, with his signature style, wants to play outside on a springtime day, but the wind is wreaking havoc with his fun and games. As soon as he builds a card tower, climbs into a giant spider web, or takes up his pirate sword, here comes the wind: Woosh!

Mama Fox tells grumpy Argyle that if he thinks long enough, he will come up with something to do. Following his mother’s suggestion and inspired by her knitting, he works all the pieces of his day together and creates the perfect solution.

The story of Argyle teaches that failure is often a path to success and celebrates perseverance, creative thinking, and an old-fashioned springtime activity.

About the Author:

Marie Letourneau is a full-time illustrator and graphic artist, with a BA in Fine Arts from Hofstra University's New College on Long Island. Marie illustrated Is a Worry Worrying You? and The Tiptoe Guide to Tracking Fairies and was the author and illustrator for The Mice of Bistrot des Sept Frères. She and her family live in New York.

Review:

"The artwork is rich, engaging, and filled with endearing details. The other forest creatures, such as a gardening badger in overalls and a little blue bird with a pirate eye patch, are particularly charming. This is a cautionary tale that can provide social and emotional lessons for children who are easily frustrated or angered. A perfect story for a windy day; the illustrations shine in this charismatic read-aloud addition to picture book collections."― School Library Journal

"Letourneau's animal characters are appealing, and the settings are busily colorful, with greens, blues, and oranges filling the pages. The final spread is endearing....Argyle ably demonstrates that if you build it yourself, you and your friends will have a great time." ― Kirkus Reviews

"Undaunted by the fierce spring winds, one determined woodland lad sets out to enjoy the day, in Marie Letourneau’s Argyle Fox, a lighthearted tale of tenacity, creative thinking, and the power of a woodland gale. Argyle Fox, sporting his signature diamond-patterned scarf, learns through trial and error, along with a lot of encouragement and some sound advice from his mom, that a little ingenuity can go a long way, especially on a blustery afternoon." ― Foreword Reviews

"Anticipation is key to Letourneau’s simple, engaging plot. Amid playful scenes punctuated with Argyle’s frustration, Letourneau balances her story with cozy, inviting idyllic forest and home scenes, as well as stylized figures and warm colors. A great read-aloud about perseverance and creative thinking." ― Booklist

"Letourneau captures Argyle's frustrations in fresh, cheery illustrations punctuated with her hero’s frustrated outbursts....Letourneau’s tale offers a gentle reminder of the rewards of perseverance, resourcefulness, and creativity." ― Publishers Weekly
