Published Reviews
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.)"
