From Booklist:

This well-illustrated book from the Green Light Reader series retells the fable of the fox and the stork. When Fox invites Stork to dinner, he serves soup in a dish so shallow that Stork cannot eat from it. Stork retaliates by inviting Fox for soup served in a jar so tall that he cannot reach into it. Finally, Fox learns "that being kind to others is the right thing to do." The characters and setting glow with colors in McDermott's lightly stylized illustrations. Accessible, satisfying fare for young readers. Carolyn Phelan
