Crazy Like a Fox: A Simile Story
by Loreen Leedy

Leedy takes well know similes (roar like a lion, mad as a hornet...) and cleverly combines them to create a charming story about a fox, a lamb, and a surprise birthday party. Add in the colorful digital illustrations and this is a great book overall and perfect for teaching similes.

In a starred review, Kirkus Reviews said it will be "as welcome as springtime to teachers, aspiring writers and any who appreciate wordplay."
