Written and Illustrated by Pat Hutchins
Published by Red Fox Children's Books
This hen is definitely no dumb cluck. A great little book, again one I remember from my dim and distant childhood (check out the funky and typically 70s artwork by Hutchins here). Rosie is a hen who sets off on her daily stroll, pursued by a hungry fox. Naturally the story doesn't quite turn out how you'd expect, but your toddler will love trying to guess what happens between frames.
Simple, but hugely effective and fun.
Charlotte's best bit: "Fox going swimming!"
Daddy's favourite bit: Definitely the 70s artwork throughout.
