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.
