    2. My 2 1/2 year-old picked this out at the library while her older brother was browsing the myths and folk tales section. I almost didn't take it home with us because I figured it would be too advanced for her and wouldn't hold her attention, but I was wrong. She specifically requested "the fox book" and listened intently for the entire story (which wasn't actually as long as I feared it would be; I thought based on the cover that there would be four separate tales inside, but all four are woven i [...]

    5. FablesLowry, Amy. Fox Tails: Four Fables from Aesop (2012). A wily fox encounters a long but eventful day involving other animals, unattainable grapes, cheese, a well, and a difficult meal. This collection of four Aesop fables retold with a modern rendition shot as one story still conveys the explicit morals and memorable sayings of the original socially instructional tales. Author, Amy Lowry, also illustrates this story with paintings that are simply washed in mute colors with white backgrounds [...]

    6. Amy Lowry weaves together 4 classic fables from Aesop into an effective narrative. The moral of each fable is stated by the fox and not presented as a separate ending, as is common in many Aesop collections. Beginning with the sour grapes, Lowry's charming fox then flatters a crow to get some cheese and tricks a goat into helping him out of a well. I found the final fable and ending a bit less successful than the first 3 fables -- the fox's friends invite him over and then return a bad turn. Rec [...]

    7. Cleverly blending four classic fables from Aesop into one seamless story showing the untrustworthiness of the wily fox, the author shows him getting what he deserves in the end after he plays one too many tricks on those around him. The author explains each story's moral in the back matter. The gouache and pencil illustrations are particularly appealing and fit the fables perfectly. Young readers will smile at the fox's frustration as he frustratedly tries to enjoy stew poured into a narrow-neck [...]

    8. I liked this book because it incorporates four fables into one story. The author also makes the morals and themes obvious. The fables are from a person named Aesop. Without reading the author's note, I would not have known this. I believe a study or introduction about Aesop would be beneficial. I could use this book to introduce fables and their purpose. Students could create this own fable after reading the story. I would recommend this book because it can be used in many ways and can be used f [...]

    9. This book is four fables woven together in a form of morals. Each of the stories has a different moral and they all intertwine in the end. The main character, Fox, and supporting characters, Crow, Goat, and the stork. Through different encounters amongst each animal the story presents different fable and a final moral at the end. Its illustrations are simple watercolors. I think it would be a good book for the classroom because it has important morals that are good for everyone to hear and defin [...]

    10. This story takes four tales from Aesop and turns them into a single day in the life of fox. In doing so it leaves out a lot from the original. The message also seems to blur from fox getting what he deserved for his bad behavior to fox just really having a bad day. I do not think I will use this version in my classroom. The original is better.

    11. Interweaving four classic fables: The Fox and the Grapes, The Fox and the Crow, The Fox and the Goat and The Fox and the Stork we see fox both as the trickster he is and getting his comeuppance in this busy day. An interesting look at the role of the fox in Aesop’s fables and a great way to stimulate discussion during a unit on fables.

    12. Because one fable is never enough, this collection of four familiar fables is woven together into one story. Though the fox tricks the crow and goat early on, the stork helps them outwit the fox in the end. Reviewer 11.

    13. The illustrations are good, the colors are fairly muted, and there are several clever and quirky flourishes I picked out in my first reading. I quite liked the type (McKracken.) The stories themselves are familiar and well-portrayed for a young audience.

    14. This book is a fantastic combination of four separate fables. Following the story of a tricky little fox, this book has a not so happy ending for him. After he tricked the goat, stork, and crow, they finally get their own form of revenge on Mr. Fox.

    15. very successful story that integrates four fables into one picture book. The last one, about the Fox and the Heron was a bit problematic, because my kids has never seen a heron drink, and also because the moral, One Bad Turn Deserves Another, is not very, um, nice?

    16. Bought as a Christmas gift for a 5 year old nephew who loves foxes. It's told as a single story, but incorporates four of Aesops fables as the story moves along, so it's a good introduction to Aesop. Additionally, the artwork is quite nice!

    17. Four fables woven together nicely into one longer story, with fox getting a satisfying bit of comeuppance at the end. Did you see the book of "Anansi Tales" on his bookcase? :)

    18. Blends together four of aesop's fables: Fox and the goat, Fox and the crow, Fox and the stork, and Fox and grapes.

    19. I was expecting the book to be divided into 4 chapters, but the author combined the 4 fables into 1 story.

    20. This was a clever way of interweaving several fables into one narrative. The artwork is adequate but not particularly memorable.

    21. I thought this book was a great way to teach morals. Teaching children the way you treat others it will eventually back fire. So treat people the way you would love to be treated.

    22. Author Amy Lowry neatly weaves four of Aesop's famous fables into a single story about a full-of-swagger fox who gets outfoxed.
