4.0 out of 5 stars Cool 6 July 2008
Prey outwits predator in this rustic fable. Sly Fox, hungry for chicken soup, captures Red Hen in a bag and carries her toward his den. But Red Hen is a clever thing, and when the fox stops to doze, she escapes. Red Hen places heavy rocks in the bag and escapes; and Sly Fox discovers her handiwork only when the boulder splashes into his kettle of boiling water. Red Hen is a chubby thing and slender Sly Fox can't be blamed for working up a craving for her. The illustrations are delightfully lovely. The text style and size are perfect for the aimed age group which is 4 - 8. I think the age group should have been 2 - 6 because it is a little bit babyish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Turned the Key to Reading for our Daughter 27 Aug 1999
By A Customer
We picked up a secondhand copy of this book at a Saturday market stall in England on holiday. Although we'd tried several books to interest our six-year-old in reading, the format of this book really worked for our daughter. The story is familiar but not stale, the graphics are good. My daughter even commented on the typestyle being easy to read. Well done! We're buying the boxed set today!
