MY SUMMARY

Meet Mr. Fox and Mr. Knox. Mr. Fox is the mischievous naughty one, Mr. Knox just wants to be left alone, but Mr. Fox has other plans. He wants to play a game of tongue twisters and they seem to get more complicated as the poor annoyed Mr. Knox complains of the difficulty of the tongue twisters. But Mr. Fox goes on and on and on, much to Mr. Knox’s chagrin. Read the book to find out how Mr. Knox gets back at Mr. Fox.
