Pretty darn funny Goes to show that the fox isn t always the smartest marble in the bag And that it is important to listen to others. I do love Barry Moser s animal faces Palatini writes really fun folktale retellings. On the long side for reading aloud to kids, but has a good number of characters if you are into using character voices My boys like the parts that get repeated multiple times like, voil , grapes and, no grapes They like it well enough to sit and go through the story by themselves. The ISD students quickly figure out that Fox isn t very nice or very smart He doesn t speak well to bear and beaver, and if he would just listen to the other animals, he would figure our that there can be several ways to solve a problem, particularly with team work. I don t want to say I didn t like it, because it was entertaining In addition, I don t even want to say It was okay, because I choked on the first line of the first page, which states, grapes hanging from a vine growing high on a tree I might be wrong, but I m pretty sure grapevines do not grow up into trees From the very beginning, my disbelief was suspended.Another reviewer pointed out that porcupines do not aim and shoot their quills These two faults will require a knowing adult to correct the misinformation Other fanciful, imaginative concepts such as foxes drawing diagrams and animals stacking themselves into the air will certainly be understood by children as not real However, these other two inaccuracies might be perceived as factual Unfortunately, some children will read this on their own and be left with inaccurate information Too bad, otherwise this could have been an entertaining introduction to Aesop s fables. This was a funny rework of the Aesop fable Fox and the Grapes Even though Fox views himself as a great strategist, he s unable to come up with a successful plan to get the grapes that are hanging in a tree He also is unable to recognize good advise when he hears it, because every animal that he asks has an alternate solution that he won t listen to despite it being a good idea I m going to assume that the grapes are growing in the tree, not from the tree Anyway, when he finally runs out of ideas he declares that the grapes must be sour rather than let someone else solve the problem He storms off and all the other animals get some grapes their own way Very funny story.
