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.

This book is about a chicken named Rosie and her walk through the farmyard. It provides a variety of descriptive directional words.

about a hen who leaves the chicken coop and goes on a walk. She was followed by a fox who gets it as Rosie continues to walk. ( )

A great use of medium. The text is a single sentence, describing Rosie the hen's peaceful walk around the farm ("Rosie the hen went for a walk . . . and got back in time for dinner."), but the illustrations tell a different story: the whole time, a fox is pursuing her, intent on getting his own dinner. Humorous mishaps keep stopping him, and eventually he's chased off by a swarm of bees. The art is nice--red, orange, and yellow in the foreground and green in the background, usually with heavy borders, giving everything a sort of paper cutout look. Quite enjoyable.

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.
