The Fox sisters, Zelda the elder and Ivy the younger, are siblings of the finest kind. Whether doing acrobatic antics on a swing--can a fox balance on its tail?--or "doozying" up a tail in the latest style--try a little color and snipping--each sister is a model of understanding and friendship. Jenny Selig narrates gently and earnestly in a child-friendly voice. She uses emphasis and elongation in Zelda's voice to underscore the pressure an elder sister might use to coerce a younger sister. As Ivy, Selig is unassuming, trusting, and sweet. Pacing is slow, letting both the Fox girls and the humor shine. A.R. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
