A lovely rhyming tale of a fox trying to unearth why the chickens are going missing from Bluebell Farm; he has been wrongly accused of being the perpetrator and is trying to clear his name!

Easy to read aloud, thanks to the melodic nature of the rhyming prose. Similarly I think it's easy to listen and pay attention to for this reason!

My son loves chickens! So anything with a chicken in is automatically a winner; that said, the subject matter shouldn't detract from the cheery nature of the story and the well-executed, simple writing that are complemented by the characterful illustrations.

The bright, bold drawings captivate my son and he enjoys looking at the details in each - such as where and how each individual chicken sleeps in the hen house. 

This was a bedtime staple for a few months and is a book we frequently revisit. It's sweet picture book that not many people seem to have heard of! It's definitely worth a read.

It's a poetic book about a Fox who has been accused of stealing chickens by Farmer Bob, but he's got it all wrong! Foxy tries to prove that the chickens have hatched a master plan to escape the chicken coop, and he hasn't eaten them, he's vegetarian! 

Great story, good pictures, and a happy ending.  We do love a happy ending.
