Rosie's Walk

A funny classic where the quirky folk-art pictures are what tell the real story. Rosie the hen sets off for a lovely stroll around the farm. So far, so boring. But look closer! What’s that foxy shadow behind her? Oh dear. Poor Rosie has no idea she’s in danger. Will she make it home again? Laugh out loud as the unlucky fox – who is shown but never mentioned – falls into a pond, gets chased by angry bees, and is buried in a haystack!

  • A pioneering classic full of wit and innovation
  • The words tell one story – the pictures tell another!
  • Beautiful patterned artwork in a distinctive folk style
  • Helps to teach concepts of direction and location
