Set against stunning illustrations of a beautiful farming background, Henry and the Fox is a book about being brave.

Now he can cock-a-doodle doo to his heart’s content!

Synopsis

Henry and the Fox by Chris Wormell

Cockerels are usually bossy and self-important, but not Henry. Henry is a cowardly cockerel who won't even say 'poo!' to a piglet, and his crowing is awful. Henry's friend - Buffy Bantam has come up with a plan. The pair set out to convince the other hens that Henry is a brave hero. Will Henry manage to conquer his fears and save the day?

Reviews

A nicely told and beautifully illustrated farmyard tale with a reassuring message.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
