Fox and Hen Together (Stories Without Words)
by Beatrice Rodriguez
Ages 3-5 32 pages Enchanted Lion Books April 2011 Hardcover    

This sequel to The Chicken Thief is a wordless fishing story about the one that almost got away.

Fox is looking after Henís egg while she goes out to catch fish. There is no food in the house, so when she catches a fish almost as big as she is, she refuses to let go - even when a huge bird and a sea serpent fight her for the meal.

The fish in this story is caught in a tug of war game, but Hen will ultimately win because she has Crab on her side - and a surprising talent for controlling unruly creatures. Hen is able to go home with enough food for everyone, including the new youngest that hatched when she was away.

Children who like exaggerated action and high jinks in their story will enjoy the continuing story of Fox and Hen. Children and parents can take turns telling this story by adding dialogue, narration and sound effects.
