A rabbit family is first to notice the crafty intruder on their peaceful hillside, and they hurry to warn others. But the wolf pursues, and the comedy mounts as an ever-increasing band of animals flees before him. In a last attempt to escape, the animals all squeeze into an old shack. When the rickety structure collapses with a huge crash, the terrified wolf turns tail to flee the farm forever, leaving the satisfied animals in peace at last. Ken Brown's richly textured watercolor paintings fill this comical farmyard chase with movement and color. Mr. Brown's book A Flea in the Ear was an American Bookseller Pick of the Lists.
