I discovered this little gem when my daughter was little and we went to the library every week to look for new books to read. It's so fun to read aloud, if you get into that, because it's mostly written using words that start with "F". Not only that, but there's a lilt to the whole thing; a rhythm and meter that's fun to speak, although it doesn't really rhyme, which is not a bad thing. It's about a fox named Fosdyke who doesn't want to go hunting with his brothers and sisters, but would rather be at home, cooking up wonderful vegetarian meals with culinary flair. All in all, a very charming, fun, memorable little book.
