  1. I think what happened on Fox Street was a very detailed book.
    I think What Happened on Fox street was a very detailed book because the author really explained how Fox street looked. There were a lot of good words used in this book. She really detailed Mo (the main character) and supported why Mo was like that. I had to use a lot of back ground knowledge for most of the book.The problem is that Mo and everybody else have never seen a fox before. Not even on Fox street! Mo’s sister went in the woods to find a fox and Mo thought that she got lost. So Mo goes out in the woods to find her sister. Mo’s dad wants to sell their house and mover somewhere else. Mo won’t stand for it though. You just have to read the book to find out! I hope you take my advice and read what happened on Fox street!
