Peter tries hard not to cough or make noise but even when the cloak hit past two, the fox has more important things to do like dream of food such as cake and ice-cream.
What an adorable little children's book! Wonderful rhyme with a great little story line, about Ferdinand a kindhearted fox and his adventures. The fox was so cute, the illustrations didn't disappoint. Colorful, bold and eye catching, a perfect children's book that is easy to follow. I loved the fox. I loved how the fox counted sheep in order to fall asleep, and I though it was cute when it dreams of all the yummy food. It was an enjoyable read even for me as an adult and the children found it delightful. A story that can be read again and again.
