From the Publisher:
Fox thinks he’s very smart when he plays a trick on Stork, but Stork outfoxes Fox--and shows him that a friend who tricks another is no friend at all. Caldecott Medalist Gerald McDermott retells a familiar trickster tale, bringing warmth and humor to the story that readers young and old will enjoy.
Illustrator and author Gerald McDermott studied graphic design and filmmaking at the Pratt Institute in New York and began his career as a filmmaker. After continuing his studies in Europe, McDermott returned to Pratt where he began producing and directing animated films on mythology. It was his interest in mythology and cultural symbols that led him to create his first picture book, ANANSI THE SPIDER, which earned a Caldecott Honor in 1973. His next book, ARROW TO THE SUN, was awarded the 1975 Caldecott Medal.
