Fox in Socks Cunning and Cleverness Quotes

How we cite our quotes: (Stanza.Line)

Quote #4

Mr. Knox. Now
come now. Come now.
You don't have to
be so dumb now… (41.1-4)

We assume Fox uses dumb as a way to signify the inability to speak and is in no way dissing Knox's intelligence. "We assume" being the key words there.

Quote #5

Now wait
a minute,
Mr. Socks Fox! (55.1-3)

Knox stands up for himself. This is the first page in the book with an illustration not showing Fox smile. Consider the tables turned.
