"Lemmings don't jump off cliffs." It says so right here in Foxy's book. There's just one problem: the lemmings haven't read it. Welcome aboard the S.S. Cliff for a hilarious arctic adventure as first mate Foxy and Captain Polar Bear try to get these little guys to just READ THE BOOK!

`An off-the-wall lesson about the value of facts... Children will laugh, be encouraged to read and be glad to Know Better.' Sunday Times
`A new favourite in our house... full of wit and exuberance, perfect for visually sophisticated modern children.' Irish Independent

5 stars
This was a really funny book which made both my 5 year old and myself laugh out loud. It was nice to read a picture book with a little bit more of a storyline, for a more advanced reader, and the facts made us want to find out more about lemmings. The illustrations were bright and bold, and filled the entire page (edge-to-edge coverage) and the book was the perfect size to share at bedtime. I would (and have) thoroughly recommend this book, and will be looking out for other books with similar humour in them.

The other thing that I really liked about the book, was that the cover was slightly sturdier than your average picture book, and had fold in tabs on both sides that could be used to mark a page if you didn't want to read the entire story in one sitting (of if you needed to interrupt reading for whatever reason).

Geronimo!!!!! My daughter loves this book- she finds the escapades of the lemmings hilarious, and enjoys joining in with geronimo and cannonball- possibly her favourite bits of the book! The illustrations are really fun and colourful. A really great book, we have already read it several times and taken it in to school to show the teachers.

Why don’t The the lemmings just read the Book....? (good storyline)

The art in the book is very cute. Brilliant concept.

My husband and son call out the lines in this book, “jump, me too, ditto” and laugh out loud.

We love this book! 
It follows Foxy, Captain PB and three lemmings.
The lemmings; Jump, Me Too and Ditto won't read Foxy's book because they are too busy jumping off the cliff!

It really made both of my children laugh and they always join in by saying "ditto" or shouting GERONIMOOOOOO! I think the repetitivness is good for teaching your child new words and the fact that it's a fun, humorous story adds to the enjoyment of reading.

The dynamic duo of Author Ame Dyckman and author/illustrator Zachariah Ohora are a recipe for fun, laugh-out-loud reading without skimping on giving readers something to ponder...in this case the life-saving qualities of reading and how checking your facts leads you to know what you know is true. All of the characters in this story, including the whale who is the ship, have a developed personality, a different sense of humor. and a purpose. I know that so many of my elementary school library readers will love this story and pour over the illustrations more than once

A fun book for children about Foxy who reads a book about Lemmings and finds out that they don't jump off cliffs he tries to teach the Lemmings this as they haven't read the book! It was funny and made my son laugh although he didn't understand what the word 'ditto' meant which is used a lot.

Personally I loved the illustrations used in the book, the black and white against the bold colours worked really well and made for an eye catching read.

I read this book to my 7 year old god son and 3 year old son. The story was slow to start for my tree year old but he soon got into it. We were all captivated by the bold art work and illustrations and the funny story line made us all laugh. The adventures of the lemmings kept us all amused by it was my suited to a slightly older audience m.

This book is a hoot and the illustrations are so cute. I read this to my five year old twin girls and they really engaged with the story and fell in love with the lemmings. A really sweet, funny book that I recommend.

Loved this book, read with my 4 1/2 year old daughter, she was a bit confused at the beginning but once we got into it she really enjoyed the characters. She loved the lemmings and Captain PB. Once I had read it with her she then read it herself and was loving doing different voices for the different characters. Would recommend.
