Summary

Summary

Pinkerton's young owner has to identify different birds and mammals for homework. So, she and her mother set off for the woods with Pinkerton and Rose. There they run into a group from the Hunting Academy, out in search of the noble fox. The craziness begins when the hunters mistake Rose for a fox, and charge after her. And where is Pinkerton? He is making friends with a red bird while drifting overhead in a hot air balloon. "Pinkerton's return can be welcomed with brio . . . filled with the kind of humor that allows tots to chuckle with glee and older picture book readers to guffaw through the antics . . . Bravo, Kellogg!" (Booklist, starred review)
