Editorial Reviews

Roger Sutton
One of the savvier of the ubiquitous board book adaptations, this slapstick picture-puzzle is just right for toddler, who will easily follow the oblivious hen's stroll through the farm while the hapless fox is foiled at each turn. It's all in the pictures.
The Horn Book Guide
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
For thirty years, the humor of Rosie's walk has been enjoyed in picture book form, and now it is available as a board book. Nothing is lost in this transition-our oblivious hen strolls through the farm while the lurking fox figures that he has a tasty meal within his grasp. Alas, the fox is thwarted at every turn and Rosie blithely returns back home unharmed. Kids who enjoy this tale will probably also love Suddenly! by Colin McNaughton and Flossie and the Fox by Patricia McKissack.
From the Publisher
"A broadly humorous book for the very young."

Time

"A sunny, slapstick silent comedy."

    Perfect for the Preschooler

    I used this book extensively when I taught preschool. Now I will put it in my two and a half year old grandson's Easter basket. Pat Hutchins is a wonderful writer and illustrator. This simple story is told with few words, some pages have no text at all allowing the child can tell the story. Hutchins uses directional words (under, over, through) to learn and even act out after reading. I cannot wait to share this with my grandson!

    Classic!

    I ordered this book on the advice of a trusted youth librarian. Couldn't be better. When it came, my 4-year-old granddaughter was here. We read it together and it totally tickled her funny bone. She wanted to read it to everyone else here.
    Great book. I am making a farm quilt and Rosie will be walking all around the border, having her adventures.

    Look out Rosie!

    This book is a delightful book to read aloud with young children because of the fantastic illustrations and the contradiction between the illustrations and the story. Rosie has no idea that the fox is following her, which we only learn from the illustrations. But we're rooting for Rosie the whole time. The illustrations are big and easy to follow and the story is great for discussion and interaction between child and parent. Hutchins has created a lively and exciting picture book that all ages can enjoy. The colors and shapes are also great for teaching to younger children who are in the process of learning and the bold lines are great for keeping their attention.
