The publisher fox’s tail once again whisked cheerily as it greeted its first evening guest. It was a reader fox wearing a pair of bright colored glasses and a patterned bandana around its head. The reader fox held its much worn copy of the author fox’s new book tightly to its chest as it eagerly followed the publisher fox down a winding staircase to its den. In the middle of the book-filled den, near a pair of puffy armchairs, the publisher fox introduced reader to author, and excited conversation ensued. Over the course of the evening the den slowly filled with other fervent reader foxes, the publisher fox keeping things lively with readings, refreshments, and ragtime music. Before the night came to an end, the publisher fox quietly asked the author fox, “Are you ready to announce your next book?” The eager reader fox overheard the question and yipped with excitement.
