4 out of 5 stars on GoodReads

These funny comic strips follow two fox friends, Ozy and Millie, as they struggle through school, bicker with their parents over chores, and contemplate the meaning of the universe. Each comic has it’s own punch line, but the comics also follow a storyline, building on one another and giving the book some cohesion.

Ozy is the “straight man” for Millie’s wild comedy. Millie has crazy ideas, and bounces around being strange and wonderful, saying the most bonkers things you ever heard. And Ozy calmly points out her folly with delicious sarcasm. They are so hilarious together!
I like the simple art style, and the clean structure of the lines. It makes it easy to read, but also attractive to look at.

I find the content similar to “Calvin and Hobbes” comic strips, with random philosophical contemplation that ends in chores or bedtime or homework. I love it!

This would be such a fun book to read with kids, especially because there is a glossary at the back which gives definitions for some of the big words used in the comics, like “altruistic” and “Hobbesian social contract theory”.
