Fox in the Library
|Author:||Lorenz Pauli; Kathrin Schärer (Illustrator)|
A library works miracles Fox thinks he has a little mouse just where he wants him, until Mouse says, "This is not a hunting area, but a library... You can only borrow things here." So begins the hilarity, as Mouse offers the fox a book so that he will get new ideas--besides wanting to eat mice. The new book works Now Fox is thinking about eating chickens, until Chicken points out that chicken bones are dangerous. But when the chicken eating, fox-hunting-Farmer walks into the library, Fox and Chicken have to think fast and come up with a surprising solution that just might save them both.
"."..the sly humor is reminiscent of Jon Klassen's "I Want My Hat Back "(2011), while the full-spread illustrations are filled with motion and will keep young listeners anticipating each page turn.""--Annie Miller "Booklist "
