Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 1-3-Children eager to move beyond easy readers and older students requiring simple text in a chapter-book format will find this title a good choice. As in many familiar folktale themes, Fox and Crow are trying to outwit each other. In the first episode, Fox tricks Crow into dropping a chunk of cheese right into his mouth. Crow then uses cheese to lure Fox into a cleverly designed trap. But where does the cheese come from? The third chapter shows both tricksters recognizing their mistakes. "That will teach you not to steal my cheese," says Mama Bear, whose presence in the earlier chapters will be noted by astute observers of Braun's lively, colorful cartoon-style illustrations. With its crisp writing and short sentences, this is a solid addition.-Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CTα(c) Copyright 2011.

Review

"The familiar fable about Fox and Crow, retold for new readers. Youngsters will quickly understand the word 'outfoxed' after reading these tales of flattery, greed and cheese, told as three connected short stories...Humorous watercolor illustrations are punctuated by thought bubbles showing the animal's plans...Funny chapter titles will amuse adults, and subtle visual details make this a fable book that new readers will return to."--Kirkus Reviews

Because cheese stores sounds funny and
mama bear was not happy.
But both are really smart but not as smart or good as mama bear.

Format: Paperback
What starts out as an Aesop's fable inspired story goes in a different direction, in this beginning reader collection of funny short stories about the enmity between Fox and Crow. Longer sentences, with simple vocabulary and a "chapter" organization make this book perfect for kids who aren't quite ready for chapter books yet. As Fox and Crow squabble over cheese (their favorite snack) readers will be surprised and pleased to see them both get their much deserved comeuppance from Mama Bear.
