XO, OX A Love Story

By:  Adam Rex

I laughed out loud reading this humorous love story between an ox and a gazelle.  The two characters come to life through letters to each other in this humorous picture book.  Ox is head over heels in love with Gazelle, but she does not return his affection.  Gazelle is very self-centered and thinks that Ox is clumsy and smelly.  Ox continues to optimistically pursue Gazelle despite her repeated attempts to brush him off.  This tale of opposites attract is charming and well-executed by author Adam Rex and illustrator Scott Campbell.
