Rosie's walk around the farmyard, pursued by the hungry but clumsy fox, has become a beacon in the world of children's picture books, an ever-popular classic which generations have enjoyed. Children love the humour of this near-wordless story. One disaster after another befalls the poor fox while Rosie goes on her way, supremely unaware of the danger behind her. Now at a wonderful larger size, this re-issue will bring the joy of Rosie's tale and Pat's bold artwork to a new generation of fans.
This timeless picture book by Pat Hutchins is now over forty years old and still a firm favourite.
"This clever book teaches children how to read the different meanings conveyed by words and pictures, and how to make sense of a story for themselves." -- Anthony Browne S Magazine, Sunday Express "The highly patterned red, orange and yellow graphics are as fresh and funny as they were in 1968 and will make 2-4s scream with laughter" The Times "The pictures tell an action packed story full of drama and surprise" -- Julia Eccleshere Guardian "This marvellous, perfect, utterly simple book has achieved iconic status, a true classic" Carousel "All young children will enjoy the tale of Rosie the hen and her walk around the farm followed by a hungry but thankfully hapless fox" Sunday Express
