THE FOX WENT OUT ON A CHILLY NIGHT

by | Read by Tom Chapin

Children Ages 4-6 • 9 min. • Unabridged • © 2006

For the farmer, there's nothing to appreciate about a pesky fox stealing poultry from the henhouse. But for the fox's kits? there's nothing like the triumphant return of dad with food to the den, and for the listener there's nothing like Tom Chapin performing this well-loved folk song. As narrator, Chapin is direct and unobtrusive as he lets Peter Spier's award-winning illustrations share the story. Background music is light, and well-selected sound effects heighten the setting. Chapin's music brings animation and pleasure. The fox's step is quick and light; Mother Giggle Gaggle is indignant; the hunting horns, majestic; and the feast, resplendent. Children will enjoy the " quack, quack, quack" and " bones-o, bones-o" refrains. A.R. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
