Rosie's walk around the farmyard, pursued by the hungry but clumsy fox, has become a beacon in the world of children's picture books, an ever-popular classic which generations have enjoyed. Children love the humour of this near-wordless story. One disaster after another befalls the poor fox while Rosie goes on her way, supremely unaware of the danger behind her. It's a delight, and perfectly suited to the board book format. Pat Hutchins is a winner of the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal for children's book illustration.
