Inspired by the evil villains and innocent damsels of silent movies, Willems tells the tale of a hungry fox who invites a plump goose to dinner. As with the beloved Pigeon books, kids will be calling out the signature refrain and begging for repeated readings. The funny details in the full-color illustrations by three-time Caldecott Honoree Mo Willems will bring nonstop laughter to story time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from funny and unexpected This starts out seeming to be the usual story of watch out, danger danger, oh-oh too bad. The surprising twist at the end is funny and unexpected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A book for kids of all ages. We love the Elephant and Piggie books, as well as Pigeon and Knuffle Bunny (1), so when I spied this title, I knew it was going home with us. The story had my kids going to the end, and, as we are silent movie watchers, the presentation is fantastic (it will make sense when you read the book). I am recommending this book to everyone I know, as this one is a winner.
