内容紹介

National Book Award Longlist * New York Times Bestseller * An Amazon Best Book of the Year

From bestselling and award-winning author Sara Pennypacker comes a beautifully wrought, utterly compelling novel about the powerful relationship between a boy and his fox. Pax is destined to become a classic, beloved for generations to come.

Pax and Peter have been inseparable ever since Peter rescued him as a kit. But one day, the unimaginable happens: Peter's dad enlists in the military and makes him return the fox to the wild.

At his grandfather's house, three hundred miles away from home, Peter knows he isn't where he should be—with Pax. He strikes out on his own despite the encroaching war, spurred by love, loyalty, and grief, to be reunited with his fox.

Meanwhile Pax, steadfastly waiting for his boy, embarks on adventures and discoveries of his own. . . .

レビュー

“Pax the book is like Pax the fox: half wild and wholly beautiful.” (New York Times Book Review)

“Moving and poetic.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“Pennypacker’s expert, evenhanded storytelling reveals stunning depth in a relatively small package.” (Booklist (starred review))

“In an exceptionally powerful, if grim story, Pennypacker does a remarkable job of conveying the gritty perspective of a sheltered animal that must instantly learn to live in the wild.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“A startling work of fiction that should be read-and discussed-by children and adults alike.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

“An emotional, thought-provoking story of conflict, loyalty, and love.” (The Horn Book)

“Sometimes an author steps aside from a popular series to break new ground, as evidenced in this arresting novel, at once a wilderness adventure about survival and a philosophical foray into big questions.” (San Francisco Chronicle)

“Pennypacker’s elegant language and insight into human nature spin a fable extolling empathy above all. By the novel’s poignant ending, Pennypacker has gently made the case that all of us should aspire to that view—children and adults alike.” (Time magazine)

“Searingly honest and heartbreakingly lovely, Pax is, quite simply, a masterpiece.” (Katherine Applegate, Newbery Award-winning author of The One and Only Ivan)

“A sweeping and enchanting wartime story of trust, loyalty, betrayal, and the love of a boy for the fox he’s raised since he was a kit. A master storyteller, Pennypacker leads the reader along a path of shifting hopes to the story’s heart-wrenching conclusion.” (Ann M. Martin, Newbery Honoree, author of Rain Reign)

“Pax is set in an unspecified time and place so that the details of the war are unimportant. What is prime is the graceful but haunting story of boy and fox—their relationship set against man-made chaos.” (Columbus Dispatch)

“Both boy and fox experience the kindness of others even with the backdrop of imminent war.” Recommended 2016 Holiday Gift for Tween Readers (Brightly.com)

“A book that is as much about dealing with loss as it is about how people change and affect the world around them.”An Entertainment Weekly Best Middle Grade Book of 2016 (Entertainment Weekly)

この本の裁断は、元々ぎざぎざ(deckle edge )
になっています。
良書なのにも関わらず、
日本のAmazonでは、この事について注意書きが
ないのか?返品した方がいたようで残念です。
紙にもこだわりがあり、自然な雰囲気をだしたかったのかと思いました。

作品自体はclassic に分類される本になる様に
書かれているとても奥深い本です。

特定されていないある国で、戦争がまた始まろうとしていた。
12歳の少年Peterは、父が従軍するために、遠く離れた祖父の家で暮らすことになる。

Peterは、死にかけていた赤ん坊のキツネ(red fox)を救い、Paxと名付けて世話をしてきた。PaxとPeterは、ときどき互いの気持ちに入り込むほど強い絆を持っている。だが、父は祖父の家に行く前にPaxを森に放すよう命じる。

どうしてもPaxのことを忘れることができないPeterは、Paxを救うために300マイル(約500km)の道中を歩いて戻ることにする。だが、それは容易なことではなかった。

これまで自分で餌を捕獲したことがないPaxは、野生の世界で生き残る術を知らない。ほかのキツネと出会い、少しずつ野生のキツネとしての生き方を学んでいくが、Peterのことを忘れたことはない。

これまで互いを支え合ってきた少年とキツネは、単独で困難と対面し、戦う。再び出会う日を夢見て......。

Paxは、少年とキツネそれぞれの成長の物語だ。動物が登場する児童書は、動物を擬人化したり、過剰にキュートにしてしまう傾向がある。むろんそういった本も楽しめるし、存在価値はある。だが、この本はちがう。もっと現実的な成長と、そのビタースイートさを描いている。今後も長く読み続けられていく本だろう。

裁断がボロボロで返品したのに、またボロボロなのが届きました。PAXはもともとこういうものなのでしょうか?

I'm an almost 60 year old man. My wife bought this book from because I love foxes. It's a beautifully written story. Have a box of tissues nearby. It has a proper ending. I won't say anything else about the story other than I enjoyed the journey immensely.

A truly beautiful book however I think kids should be over 10 prior to reading it. It's message is powerful and at times very unsettling. I loved it and am wildly thinking of people I can buy it for (both adults and chikdren)

5つ星のうち 5.0 “…You Will Find A Truth of Your Own …” 2016/2/3
投稿者 delicateflower152 - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
Targeted at the 8 – 12 year old group, Sara Pennypacker’s latest novel “Pax” is a book that carries universal truths and one that will touch readers of any age. Illustrated by Jon Klassen, the pen and ink drawings contained in the book enhance the story, strengthening the overall impact of the passages associated with each specific drawing.

Set in an unidentified country during an unspecified time, “Pax” serves to remind readers that war and destruction may affect anyone – or anything. Twelve-year old Peter has cared for his pet fox, “Pax”, for five years. Orphaned as a kit, “Pax” is now as domesticated as any wild animal can be; he has never had to survive in the wild. “…distrust is no match for kindness administered consistently and unmeasured …”

Having enlisted in the army, Peter’s father takes his son to live with his grandfather and demands that Peter release “Pax” back into the wild. Knowing Peter would not abandon him “Pax” waits patiently for his return. “…Pax would stay …ignore all temptations …until his boy came for him …” Haunted by his belief he has betrayed “Pax”, Peter leaves his grandfather’s home to recover his pet. A broken leg, an encounter with an amputee-veteran whose unnamed war occurred twenty years previously, and a realization – by both Peter and “Pax” – that each must be true to his own nature creates an emotional, poignant story that will touch your heart.

Writing in the third person voice, Sara Pennypacker alternates the focus of “Pax” between developments affecting Peter and those in which “Pax” learns what it is to be a fox. Each chapter remains true to the focal character. In Peter’s, the reader learns about his life and his past. "…if he could visit the kind-eyed therapist, he’s smash those toy cars …Just to make everybody see …” The reader also watches Peter grow in his understanding of himself and of others. Talking to his benefactor about her war experience, Peter empathizes with her emotional state and begins to formulate a plan that will free her from her self-imposed exile. In Pax’s chapters, the narrative does not humanize the animals but remains realistic when it details the actions and responses to their surroundings. By Sara Pennypacker doing so, those portions of the narrative seems less fictitious and more like an appealing nature documentary. In both characters’ chapters, the horrors and the impact of war overshadow the narrative.

One of Jon Klassen’s drawings, shown on pages 164 and 165, is quite memorable. The shadowing and use of contrasting white ”rain” against the darker background drawing is the strongest in terms of atmosphere and locale.

“Pax” is a novel that will touch your heart. It is suitable for the target age group as well as anyone who loves an outstanding story. I recommend that parents or grandparents read “Pax” before sharing it with younger, advanced readers or with those in the target age group who may be very sensitive.

5つ星のうち 5.0 We love the book. After hearing an interview on NPR . . . 2016/9/17
投稿者 Idontknowjack - (Amazon.com)

We love the book. After hearing an interview on NPR, I purchased the book for my granddaughter, but I was interested and wanted to read it too. Great book, I loved it. Then my wife read it; loved it. My daughter has been reading with my granddaughter. She is enthusiastic about it as well. The author Sara Pennypacker has some important lessons to share, teach, preach, about concepts as big as the true cost of war, acceptance, and non-duality, but she does it elegantly in this story that children will enjoy. I love the fact that she never dumbed it down for the age group she was targeting. I think maybe she expects young readers to just enjoy the story and move on, even when they don't quite understand something, knowing they will revisit the concepts in their memories of the book, or maybe in later readings of it. An example would be her conceptual devices to show the foxes communicating and developing thoughts about the humans and the human's deceit and the human's war, but then she doesn't pander in explanation of it, she just lets us soak in those ideas and work them out for ourselves. Reading to my granddaughter, I have tried to follow Sara's lead and only offer the answers and explanations on words or ideas that my granddaughter demanded, and even then, leave it as simple and straightforward as I could. Great book. I've purchased 2 copies now and will probably buy more as gifts to all my young friends and relatives.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Ten Stars If I Could 2017/2/5
投稿者 David Van Keuren - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
I'm not much of a fiction reader, especially "kid" fiction. My library is pretty much military history, but when I stumbled across this book on Amazon and saw all the great reviews I thought I would give it a read. I don't very often wonder off the beaten track of military history and the last time I did I was well rewarded with the great book All The Light We Cannot See, so I thought I would take a chance on Pax. I have to say that Pax was one of those books that you feel sorry for people who have never read it. I cannot recommend this book enough. I will be reading it to my younger grandkids, passing it on to my older grandkids and I'll be giving it away to friends and family. Don't miss this one. The rave reviews you see here are rave for a reason. This is one outstanding and very, very special book. So glad I stumbled upon it while surfing around Amazon books. If I could give it ten stars I would.
