Thought I'd share this here because I have a feeling there may be some that are interested. I recently read a very good novel called Pax. It's by Sarah Pennypacker, who I've known for her Clementine series books - this Pax book is actually rather of a departure for her in terms of the type of novel. Anyway, I have a feeling that this is one that is probably going to start showing up on lists for awards like Newbery, stuff like that.

The story is about a boy, Peter, who is sent off to live with his grandfather because of a war and is made to give up his longtime companion, a fox named Pax that he rescued. However, the boy can't bide by this and soon sets off on a quest to rescue the fox. The chapters are told alternately from his point-of-view and from that of the fox's.
