Ages 10 UP

Another instalment in the adventures of the half-human, half-fox Shinoda family. The youngest child, Moe, is invited to play somewhere fun by a new boy at kindergarten. He makes her pinky promise not to tell where they’re going, but the punishment for breaking her promise (“Your mouth’ll turn into a frog’s mouth!”) turns out to have calamitous consequences for Moe and her family. Who is this mysterious boy and what does he want with the Shinodas?
