Counting from one to ten has never been this thrilling!

An Ezra Jack Keats New Illustrator Honor Book

"Stunning... Count on requests for many readings." --School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW

"Little ones will eagerly count in subsequent readings as they also learn new descriptive vocabulary and cheer for the brave hens." --Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW

One hungry fox with two sly eyes is on the prowl...three plump hens had better watch out! Rich and colorful illustrations plunge the reader into a dramatic and exciting story set in a moonlit farmyard. With something different to count on each page, learning to count from one to ten has never been so thrilling!

This surprisingly simple counting book with a gripping tale, great for early education and read-alouds, has a hugely satisfying ending that's sure to delight generations.
