Tiffany Merrit and her little readers liked the story of my adventures. The first review about me on Amazon.
Hi, my name is Foxycat. I am yet a little boy and I have many things to learn in order to grow up. I find everything around me interesting and every day I try to learn something new: why the sun shines or why the wind blows. It appears that there are so very many wonderful and unexplored things around!
In our Foxyland everything around is alive – the lakes and fields, every tree and grass blade. The inhabitants of our small land treat each other and the surrounding nature and things with respect and care. With my Daddy and Mummy I live in a small pleasant house under a big oak tree. We visit our friends, help each other around the house, read interesting books and take sincere joy in every passing day.
An amusing man in a grey jacket and orange beret was our guest recently. He said that his name is Wald Peterson and that he is a children’s writer. He had brushes and paints and many paintings in a big bag hanging on his shoulder. While we all drank tea with Mummy’s delicious pie, Wald asked us about our country and everything around. I even told him about one of my adventures. We had such a good time together that we were sorry to part. Wald liked staying with us so much that he decided to write a book about Foxyland and my adventures. And he promised to be back for new stories, of course.
"I thought this was a great introduction to chapter books for kids! It's longer than you typical picture book, but shorter than your typical chapter book. We read it over a few days, one quick chapter at a time. My kids loved hearing about the adventures Foxy Cat went on (and all by himself?!) and the things he was able to learn and try throughout the day. As a parent, I really loved the message contained in the story that everyone in the household needs to contribute in some way to helping it run (so in this case Foxy Cat had to go run errands for his mom) and I also loved the message of growing independence."

"...We really enjoyed the language used in this story. It is written very vividly, to go along with the bright illustrations. We also liked that there are chapters inside the book, making it longer than the typical children’s book. Foxycat learns about the forest and the farm along his journey, and as such, the children reading this book learn too..."
Dara Granoff, "Not In Jersey" ,
"I have had the pleasure of reading a fun new book by Wald Peterson…
I love how this book weaves learning into the story. At each stop, Foxycat learns how his items come to be and help with the tasks at hand. As children read the book, they will also learn important details about those places and items as well…
The fun illustrations and dialogue in the book help the story move along as Foxycat gets what his mother needs. Children will enjoy it…"
