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.

Fox and Crow are a great antagonistic duo. Their story is fun, silly, and entertaining. It's divided into chapters that you can take night by night to build suspense for bedtime, or you can journey through this cute story (in one longer sitting) to its satisfying ending.

All kids will love this story, which makes it a great reading tool. My toddlers love it. It's colorful and simple, easy to understand, and quite the appealing type of conflict.

Most little ones understand this situation all too well. SHARING ISSUES. Others running off with what you want! Oh, the drama!

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!

Although I like how the book is constructed in 3 chapters, easy to understand and interesting. The problem I have is with the moral of the story. The story is all about revenge. Although they both suffer consequences for their actions, in the end the momma bear is also paying them back for taking her cheese. Although I think it's fine that they are not friends, since that is how life can go, overall I was hoping for a better lesson here. I had to keep reminding my child that revenge is not a good thing.

I love these series. But most important that my son does. I order 20+ books and he loves to read them (usually it is not that easy to make him read). I got mix of 2-3-4 levels for the second grader, second level is too easy, but it creates some fun and he reads them with pleasure. Love it, I would recommend it.

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.
