This charming story follows two children who go looking for their jump rope and discover that a group of foxes have claimed it as an answer to their wish. With beautiful, classic illustrations and lyrical text, here is a subtle, sensitive piece of magic that proves to sisters, brothers, and foxes alike that the trusted familiar often lives right next to the truly extraordinary -- if only you have the eyes to see it.
"The little girl notices that her name, 'Roxie' is painted on the handle of the rope. One of the foxes, also named Roxie, believes the rope is hers, assuming that the rope has come to her because she wished for it. The girl decides not to reclaim the rope, allowing the fox to believe her wish has come true." -- Kirkus Reviews
