Big-eyed animals in vibrant colors washed over a background of visible wood grain give a hefty, interesting look to this rhyming tale of a hungry fox with designs on a farm's inhabitants. He creeps into the barnyard, but some chicks start to cheep, before one by one, each type of animal is awakened ("And the moos of the cow / wake up the goats, / Who bleat so loudly / they all suffer sore throats"). When it's the dog's turn, the terrified fox scurries away. The forward momentum is undeniably fun.
--The New York Times
