White Fox by Chen Jiatong
(The White Fox #1)
A charming story about a fox growing up to be an adult, and trying to fulfill their destiny. This book is translated from Chinese. Sadly, this is only part one of the series. The ending of the story is sort of a cliffhanger and I don't really like it when authors do that.
There are cute illustrations in the novel, but not enough in my opinion. I think illustrations in these sort of young adult chapter books are part of the magic of reading paper books. Illustrations, photos, maps, and diagrams are certainly a way paper books still have an edge over eBooks.
Nevertheless, this is a good story for younger readers. It's written as sort of a myth, with the main character encountering obstacles along the way and how he deals with them.
