Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Mixed media, collage, and paintings illustrate the tale of a sly and very hungry fox who's scouting out his next meal. The conceptual counting book takes readers from 1 to 10, building toward the anticipated end only to offer a surprise. Each of the numbers has a double-page spread with a brightly colored number placed over a short description: One famished fox is accompanied by an picture of a red fox curled into a circle, looking off the page seemingly thinking about what to eat. He decides on three hapless hens for his dinner, but things don't go as expected, and at the story's conclusion, he becomes one frightened fox. The large pictures are delightful the fox's coat and the hens' feathers are collages of many colors and textures and offer humor as well as great technique. Both white and black backdrops show off the vivid, clear colors, and the featured numbers appear in various quadrants on the pages. Teamwork wins the day, and youngsters will cheer on the ultimately fearless fowl.--Maryann Owen Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This clever "thriller" might sound like a familiar tale: hungry fox vs. unsuspecting hens. But Read's playful twist on the story (akin to Pat Hutchins's Rosie's Walk) is also an amusing way to learn the numbers one through 10. It all begins with "one famished fox," craftily curled with a roguish look on his face. A suspenseful tone is set as his "two sly eyes" spot "three plump hens" (comically wide-eyed and feasting on worms), and the fox hatches a devious plan, portrayed in dynamic collage illustrations that economically express layers of emotion and comedy against nighttime spreads. After the hunter's "ten sharp teeth" make an appearance, things go sideways for the fox--and for the numerical order. This one wins for its subtle message of power in numbers. Ages 2--6. (Oct.)"
