Editorial Reviews

Caldecott medallist McDermott, best known for his retelling of myths and folktales (Coyote: A Trickster Tale from the American Southwest, Arrow to the Sun: A Pueblo Tale, and Musicians of the Sun), has retold a La Fontaine fable. FoX invites Stork for dinner, but serves the food in a manner that makes it impossible for Stork to eat. Greedy FoX eats it all. The tables are turned the neXt night when Stork invites FoX to dinner. FoX goes hungry and learns his lesson. The message is gently told and the illustrations are a delight. The emotions of each are clearly evident and especially those of FoXhis selfsatisfaction and eventual contrition. A good beginning reader. A level 2 reader (grades 12) in the "Green Light Reader" series. 1999, Harcourt,Ages 6 to 8.
