The Lovereading4Kids comment

An entertainingly illustrated wordless picture book story which will be loved by all ages. When the daring fox comes by and steals the chicken away from under the noses of her friends Bear and Rabbit, he sets off a dramatic chase through the forest, over the mountain and even across the sea. But what Bear, Rabbit and the rest don’t know is that Chicken has fallen in love with Fox and the two plan to live happily ever after... A touching story with a nicely surprising ending.

Lovereading comment:

How can a book with no blurb on the cover or inside the book be so gripping? Well rest assured this one is absolutely so. Chicken's friends are mortified to see him stolen by a fox. They trek up hills, through forest, down dales and across the sea to try and rescue their friend only to discover that fox and chicken are very much in love and happily living together! Absolutely beautiful full-bleed illustrations throughout portray all manner of emotions that you can't fail to get caught up in.


The Chicken Thief by Beatrice Rodriguez

When a fox steals a chicken from her friends, her friends set out to rescue her. They negotiate forests, climb mountains and cross the sea to get her back. But it becomes perfectly clear that chicken and fox love each other, as chicken explains most eloquently—in a book entirely without words.
