Review Text

Rosie the hen went for a walk. . . across the yard. . . around the pond. . . over the haystack. . . past the mill. . . through the fence. . . under the beehives. . . and got back in time for dinned Exclamation point ours, yours too after you fill in the spaces between the lines of text with what's happening in the accompanying pictures: (1) a predatory fox (2) is stunned by stepping on a recumbent rake, (3) drenched by pouncing in the pond, (4) almost suffocated by the haystack (5) and buried by a bag of flour. (6) He leaps the fence into an unwelcome wagon (7) which hurtles him into the beehives, arousing the bees who finally rout the fox (allowing the oblivious Rosie to get home free). Amusingly stylized drawings, midsummer bright, for a quick succession of narrow escapes and pratfalls that little children will giggle and gloat over. A romp for the shortest attention span, a sure defroster for the first story hour. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
