Fox tries to slink through the farmyard without being noticed, but the cow, the pig, the dog and the cat soon show him who's boss. This is a rhyming story with three surprise cut pages by the author of Circling the Triangle, A Monster Called Charlie, and S.K.U.N.K. and the Ozone Conspiracy.

PreSchool-Another "fox in the barnyard" story, this one has a rhyming text that reads aloud well and bright and lively gouache illustrations that add to its charm. One after another, the farmyard animals become aware of a fox slinking around Down by the Pond. A little gray kitten finally has the courage to attack the fox's tail, whereupon all the other creatures join the cacophonous fray and the villain is routed. The illustrations, painted in bright leaf greens, oranges, yellows, and blues, are eye-catching and the singsong rhymes are pleasing. However, the artist's occasional practice of having the fox appear on both sides of a double-page spread against a single continuous background is disconcerting. This is a minor flaw, though, and the book could serve well in preschool story time where it will surely appeal to children.?Judith Constantinides, East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA

Ages 3^-5. In this cumulative tale, the pond's the thing. A fox from down by the pond heads over to the henhouse, which is near the pond, and is chased by an old collie dog, back to the pond, where the fox's tail is bitten by a cat, and that sets off a chain of noisy events. The story then turns into a guessing game for little ones, as they are asked to guess who says, "Meow!" "Yowl!" "Oink!," etc. The watercolor-and-pen art is full of bounce, and youngsters will get in the spirit of the chase. A good choice for story hours, where this will provide some interactive moments.
