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

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.

A great reminder of the old fable with a sweet story of revenge following. My 4th grader liked the story.

We got a kick out of the parallels between the Fox and Crow . . . and our kids. It is an amusing tale that mirrors real life. We love this author and look forward to many, many more.

Format: Paperback
This is a thoroughly enjoyable book with fabulous illustrations and a nicely repetitive structure that early readers will love. In each chapter, Fox and Crow make a three step plan to trick the other out of a piece of cheese. There's a nod to Goldilocks and the Three Bears, which is fun. Early readers will enjoy going through each step of each plan, and then seeing both Crow and Fox get outsmarted in the end by Mama Bear, who makes them take responsibility for their actions. I can see this being a favorite!
