Cute story about an oblivious Hen taking a walk around the farm not seeing a fox behind her. The whole story is told in one sentence which works because the illustrations can fill in any blanks. The colors are colorful and fun. The illustrations give the book suspense whether the fox is going to eat the Hen or not. ( )

Rosie has no idea that she is being hunted in this book, but unsuccessfully. Every time the fox, that the text never mentions, gets near Rosie is saved by some funny accident.
I love the playful colorful illustrations in this story, and the irony that Rosy has no idea that she is in any danger at all.

This book is wonderfully illustrated for very young readers. It is a great book to model inferencing and it can be used to show the relationship between text and illustrations. Literature. ( )

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.
