Lousy Rotten, Stinkin' Grapes by Margie Palatini, illustrated by Barry Moser
Fox sees some grapes growing on a tree and wants some. But he is only "so high...and the grapes were so, so, so high."
What to do?
Fox comes up with plan, after plan, after plan...and acquires help from some of his friends.
Will he ever get those "lousy, rotten, stinkin' grapes??"
What I Thought:
A fun book! Fox thinks he's so clever with all his plans, and when the other animals try to offer advice (that would actually work!) he cuts them off and continues with his ideas.
The illustrations are very nice and add so much to the story. I especially loved the frustrated and exasperated looks the other animals give the fox when he ignores their suggestions.
A great book to talk about teamwork and perhaps listening to others.
