A crafty fox, a butter-wouldn't-melt-in-her-mouth goose and a band of prophesying little chicks...sounds like all the right ingredients for another hilarious Mo Willems picture book! This is the story of a hungry fox who meets a plump goose and, ooh!, what an innocent looking goose she is. Just look at those big, doey eyes - so trusting! The fox can't believe his luck so he asks the goose to go for a stroll. The goose, with her angelic face, cannot refuse. Suddenly, a little chick pops up warning the protagonist: "That is NOT a good idea!" All too late! This fox is on a roll and next, he invites the goose back to his house tucked away in the deep, dark woods, and...the goose says YES! "THAT IS NOT A GOOD IDEA!" - now, LOTS of little chicks are shouting warnings! But...just who are they trying to help? The fox or the goose? Beautiful watercolour and pencil illustrations, punctuated by all-black pages with delicately framed text, plays off the truly hilarious story and marks an exciting new visual approach for Mo. The suspense! The thrills! A marvel of perfect comic timing and hugely appealing characters - who will you be rooting for?

No Title -

This is a quirky story that my three year old finds hilarious. The phrase 'that is really not a good idea', repeated throughout the book, is now heard a lot in our house. We follow the story of a cunning fox as he entices a sweet-looking goose back to his forest lair, supposing all the while that he will eat the goose for dinner. However, the tables are turned and the fox gets his comeuppance. This gets a raucous laugh from Alex every time we read it. I hadn't come across Mo Willems before, and when I first read the book I loved the pictures but thought the story was a bit weird. However, he clearly knows kids better than me. We thoroughly recommend it.
