Ooko has everything a fox could want: a stick, a leaf and a rock. Well, almost everything . . . Ooko wants someone to play with too! The foxes in town always seem to be playing with their two-legged friends, the Debbies. Maybe if he tries to look like the other foxes, one of the Debbies will play with him too. But when Ooko finally finds his very own Debbie, things don't turn out quite as he had expected!
     A quirky, funny, charmingly illustrated story about finding friendship and being true to yourself.

Editorial Reviews

PRAISE FOR Ooko:"Playful, joyous and hip." --Kirkus Reviews"Shapiro is onto something here: a hard to define “Ooko-ness,” that is lovely, invigorating and pure." --Quill and Quire"There are some books that are almost not even worth reviewing, simply because their merits are too obvious that they’re primed to become a hit without any outside help .... this is one of those books . . . Shapiro’s sugar-spun world that exists on these pages is an idyllic and compassionate place, where life lessons are learned at a softly rolling pace." --Globe and Mail
