It is the night of the hens' fancy dress ball, but there is a mystery guest - the handsom Mr Fox.
Will the hens discover his identity before they become chicken pie?
This is quite a neat little story, and my young son loves to read it. I admit, with a shameful blush, that the little tyke had grabbed it off my desk and after giving it a quick read thru himself and deciding it was a good book, stuck it in his little library... so I should have reviewed this one a while back. Oops... my bad. -blush-
It's quite age-friendly, but due to a potentially troublesome bit near the end, it may not be suitable for very young kids who form quick attachments to chickens. So saying, even though my son is one of those kids, now that he is into school, and has eaten plenty of KFC meals, he knows what happens to wayward chooks and was OK reading this book.
Overall, a pretty good kids story... nothing spectacular in the way of story, but some great artwork. Great for young kids to read for themselves.

They're amazing! From man-eating sharks to snakes that grow longer than buses, meet the greatest record-breakers of the animal world - the tallest, largest, strongest, deadliest, fastest, and freakiest.
These extreme creatures roam the land, swim in the sea, and fly in the sky, and fascinating facts about each one accompany cool CGI art that really brings each animal to life.
Kids will love the world-record approach, the bold and colourful graphics, and the easy-to-grasp comparisons.
