This is a contemporary realistic fiction about a hen going for a walk. A fox is always behind her. But the hen leads him to go through many obstacles as he is following her. It is a very example of contemporary realistic fiction because it is very interesting and funny by the illustration of a natural walk of a hen. Also, it illustrates the concepts of "over", "under", "around", "through" graphically. The main media would be pen and ink, and wood cut. ( )

This is a funny realistic fiction which is almost wordless. Though there's few words, the story still vivid because of the illustrations. A fox followed the hen waiting a chance to eat her, and he walked with her all the way. But he was not so lucky to catch the hen. In this book, the author described the routine of the hen, which could be a material to teach children how to use proposition, like "over the hill", "around the pond". What's more, there were a lot of things about farming appearing in the illustrations, which can help children to recognize those things. The media of this book might be woodcut. ( )

This book is a small, simple written story about a hen who goes on a walk but is followed closely by a fox. On every page, you can see the Hen in different places but she never seems to notice the fox behind it. This book builds up anticipation because you are just waiting for the fox to get his hands on the hen, but the story ends with the hen getting back home safely and unharmed.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0020437501, Paperback)

Rosie the hen leaves the chicken coop and sets out for a little walk. Right behind her is the fox, slyly trying to catch up with her. Rosie's walk is quiet, uneventful and eventually leads her back to the coop, blissfully unaware of the fox's travails as he tries -- unsuccessfully -- to navigate the obstacle course that Rosie has led him through.
