Leedy, Loreen

Rufus the fox is up to something—find out why he’s acting so crazy in this clever simile story.

All night, he’s been sleeping like a log. When the sun rises, he feels as fresh as a daisy. In a story told entirely with similes, Rufus sneaks up and startles his friend Babette, and leads her on a wild chase through the woods.

Perfect for teaching figurative language, this brightly-illustrated picture book includes the definition of a simile, as well as a brief introduction to idioms and cliches—and examples on every page of different sayings and similes.

Loreen Leedy’s zany illustrations depic the figurative sayings in literal ways—a wooden fox sleeping like a log, a yellow and black striped sheep who’s as mad as a hornet—to bring home the meanings of the expressions.

Perfect for kids studying creative writing, or English language learners who may not be familiar with common but less literal sayings, Crazy Like a Fox will make readers happy as a clam—and help them incorporate similes into their own writing.
