Praise For…


“A beautiful story about our imagination and how it can change our mood, our minds, and our lives. It's good book for any little person who has a lot on their mind.” —Amy Poehler, author of Yes, Please!

“A tremendously fun book from one of the warmest, most creative fathers I know.” —Seth Meyers

“This adorable story of father-and-son bonding is as sweet as it is funny.” —Al "Weird Al" Yankovic

Little Fox and the Wild Imagination is a loving look at the power of imagination and what happens when we lead our kids with love.” —Maya Rudolph

Little Fox and the Wild Imagination had me at 'Pfffffft!' It's a gorgeous, epic adventure that's fueled by shared imagining born out of love. It has obstacles and struggles, as an epic must. It's exciting, seriously good-hearted, and very funny—words and pictures both. And maybe best of all (spoiler alert) its penultimate scene features 5,000 books!” —Tony Kushner, author of Angels in America

“Santat continues to be a master at balance and composition . . . Parents looking to cheer a moody kid up will find inspiration and a word of caution here.” —Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
