Rosie's Walk

A great use of medium. The text is a single sentence, describing Rosie the hen's peaceful walk around the farm ("Rosie the hen went for a walk . . . and got back in time for dinner."), but the illustrations tell a different story: the whole time, a fox is pursuing her, intent on getting his own dinner. Humorous mishaps keep stopping him, and eventually he's chased off by a swarm of bees. The art is nice--red, orange, and yellow in the foreground and green in the background, usually with heavy borders, giving everything a sort of paper cutout look. Quite enjoyable.
