PreSchool-2-- This engaging story of a fox family who invites Mrs. Hedgehog "for breakfast" includes elements of surprise, hospitality, misunderstanding, and kindness. The fox children set out to escort Mrs. Hedgehog to their den, assuming that their father intends to eat her, not eat with her! The endearing young foxes put her into the boiling pot on the stove, turn her on the fireplace spit, and pop her into the warm oven, attempting--but failing--to prepare her for eating. Mrs. Hedgehog is an unsuspecting sweetie, believing she's being given a bath, dried out, and warmed up for the neighborly breakfast together. When the parents return with flowers for their guest, the confused children take it all in stride as the hosts and their guests sit down to their oatmeal and muffins. Delightfully detailed watercolor and acrylic artwork covers nearly two-thirds of the pages in charming domestic scenes recalling Jan Brett's animal world, but without those sometimes overly precious qualities. --Catherine vanSonnenberg, LaJolla Country Day School, CA
