It is an interesting book. But tue ending is weird. Instead of it being a happy ish ending the fox doesn't get he wants and his "friends" don't really help either. It is still a cute story. Can't go wrong for a story to teach your children with. :D

A good story for teaching kids what happens when they are greedy. Enjoyed the vibrant illustrations on my tablet!

This book lacks imagination. I was more disappointed than my 4 year old son, however he did not enjoy it either.

I hated this book as did my 6 year old son. We were both pretty surprised that the fox's friends didn't help him at all and laughed at his misfortune. Not a good message. Skip it. Free for a reason.
