A simple and utterly delightful joke lies at the heart of this classic picture book now celebrating its 40th anniversary. Rosie the hen sets out for a walk around the farmyard. The words describe exactly the route Rosie takes as she steps proudly on her way. But, what Rosie doesn’t know is what the pictures tell the reader. A fox is greedily following behind... Young readers will delight in following the unfortunate fox as one terrible fate after another befalls him. And they will cheer at Rosie’s narrow escapes. The accompanying CD read by Samantha Bond adds a memorable audio version too. This is one of the Lovereading4kids ‘Must Read Essentials’. To view others in this category, click here.
