The Lovereading4Kids comment

This witty wordless picture book charts how much the hungry and greedy Foxly thinks about his next meal. Foxly eyes up the chickens, the ducks, the fish and the rabbits and looks as if he will feast on them all. But, when it actually comes to Foxly’s big meal, his plans for the animals are quite different from what might be expected! Strong illustrations match the text perfectly. This debut picture book is beautifully illustrated and was highly commended for the Macmillan Prize for illustration. The hardback edition won the Junior Design Award 2011.

Synopsis

Foxly's Feast by Owen Davey

Foxly is hunting for things to include in his feast. He visits the farmyard, the fish pond and the rabbit’s burrow. It looks like the animals are in danger, but there’s more to Foxly than meets the eye!

Tuck into this amazing visual treat by debut illustrator Owen Davey. Its highly visual style makes the perfect tale to beguile reluctant readers.
