Review Text

Poor Fenimore B. Buttercrunch - no jam for his morning toast and tea! And day after day, as this funny bird's ready to go to market, a blizzard or a heat wave or a hurricane intervenes. Once, he even breaks his leg going down the front steps. So he's not about to be stopped when he finally recovers ("I'm late for a dental appointment," he fibs to a gabby aunt); and just before closing time he makes it to the market, specifies strawberry - and returns home to exult, "King's-Breakfast"-fashion, "I do so like jam with my toast and my tea." Fenimore B. is the fattest rooster we've ever seen, but never mind - his sufferings are comically expanded by James Marshall to make the most of the minimal situation. And for kids in the know the echo of Milne will cap the climax very satisfactorily. (Kirkus Reviews)
