Kate Read is a recent graduate from the prestigious Anglia University MA in Illustration. She lives in East Anglia with her family and quite a few chickens. Gladys, Crackers, Hetty, Gloria, Pesto and Tiddles are just some of the hens to whom One Fox is dedicated.
Lovely, potent, brightly colored illustrations . . . Little ones
will eagerly count in subsequent readings as they also learn new
descriptive vocabulary and cheer for the brave hens. A classic
scenario flips the script in this engrossing adventure. * Kirkus -
Starred Review *
A "counting book thriller" definitely sounds like a new genre. The gripping drama, by debut author and illustrator Kate Read, is set in a moonlit farmyard, with close-up illustrations of a fox on the prowl. It will have you and your children sitting on the edge of the bed. Will the fox get the hens? There is something different to count on every page, to help learn numbers from one to 10 * I News *
