When Luca first arrives at the park, the dogs there turn him away. "You're not a dog," they say, "you're a fox," even though Luca likes to chase cats, yip at mailmen, and sniff other dogs. Still, he has to admit, he doesn't look like the other dogs—so he must be a fox, right? But when Luca finds a trio of foxes in the woods and asks to join them, they say he must be a dog. Luca can't seem to find anyone quite like him, in Karina Wolf's sensitive tale for readers 4 to 8—but then he meets a caring little girl, gains a friend, and might finally have a chance to just be himself. Chuck Groenink makes Luca adorable in his digital cartoons, with familiar Manhattan landmarks in the background.
