The Hungry Fox

The Hungry Fox - Kitty Barry Ouch… Well, that’s what happens: A true to nature children’s story book and a once-upon-a-time satire for grown-ups. The tale told in pictures is great. We need to like Hungry Fox for this to work, and we do – starting with the cross-eyed picture on the front cover and all the way through the sadness and tears to the contented ZZZ’s at the end. The art-work works. The story works too. Simple and easy to grasp – good ‘uh oh’ conflict with the bunny – a swift and satisfactory resolution (satisfactory for our likeable fox that is). It’s an appropriately subtle climax, without any graphic… I’m no expert on kids' books, but I like this one. Two thumbs up!
