The humor, colorful imagery, and lively rhythm of Brian Heinz's poetry make this a book that begs to be read aloud. Fold-out pages give the words life in large illustrations, and the dreamlike quality of Chris Sheban's artwork-which superbly captures the sly playfulness of Red Fox, the frenzied clumsiness of McCloskey, and the understandable unease of the chickens-makes turning each page an experience that will not soon be forgotten.
