Read full description of the books Fox on Wheels:This book is a collection of short stories that tell the story of fox and his adventures. The author, Edward Marshall, creates a variety of stories that allow the reader to get a sense of how fox is and what his character is like. Each short story is used as a way of telling us more about the main character, Fox. In regards to whether or not the author did this well, I would not be so sure. While I was able to get a sense of Fox's character based on the short stories and what took place, I am sure it was as descriptive as I would have preferred. If I were to make any suggestions on what to improve, it would definitely be to add more to the stories that take place and to add more to how the main character reacts to the actions that are taking place. While Fox goes on some adventures that get him in trouble or teach him something, I think there should be more happening in the stories. I feel that in order to improve the story, the author should add more descriptive details. I would suggest to the author to pretend that the book wasn't a picture book, and instead of relying on those pictures to aid in the description of the plot and characters, the author should write descriptively as if he was describing what was going on without any pictures.
I feel that this book can be a great start in teaching about how to create descriptions of a character using small short stories. This can not only teach my students about a new type of writing (short stories), but it can also teach how to develop a character over time. I would use this as an example of we can write to show what a character is like or what he is thinking. It can then motivate my students to create short stories of their own so that they can develop one of the characters in their writing as well.
Read information about the authorJames Edward Marshall (October 10, 1942 – October 13, 1992), who also wrote as Edward Marshall, was a children's author and illustrator.
His father worked on the railroad, was a band member in the 1930s, and his mother sang in the local church choir. His family later moved to Beaumont, Texas. Marshall said: "Beaumont is deep south and swampy and I hated it. I knew I would die if I stayed there so I diligently studied the viola, and eventually won a scholarship to the New England Conservatory in Boston." He entered the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, but injured his hand, ending his music career. He returned to Texas, where he attended San Antonio College, and later transferred to Southern Connecticut State University where he received degrees in French and history.
It is said that he discovered his vocation on a 1971 summer afternoon, lying on a hammock drawing. His mother was watching Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, and the main characters, George and Martha, ultimately became characters in one of his children's books. Marshall continued as a children's author until his untimely death in 1992 of a brain tumor. In 1998, George and Martha became the basis of an eponymous animated children's television show.
In addition to George and Martha, the lovable hippopotami, James Marshall created dozens of other uniquely appealing characters. He is well-known for his Fox series (which he wrote as "Edward Marshall"), as well as the Miss Nelson books, the Stupids, the Cut-ups, and many more. James Marshall had the uncanny ability to elicit wild delight from readers with relatively little text and simple drawings. With only two minute dots for eyes, his illustrated characters are able to express a wide range of emotion, and produce howls of laughter from both children and adults.
