Show synopsis A crafty fox, a butter-wouldn't-melt-in-her-mouth goose and a band of prophesying little chicks...sounds like all the right ingredients for another hilarious Mo Willems picture book! This is the story of a hungry fox who meets a plump goose and, ooh, what an innocent looking goose she is. Just look at those big, doey eyes - so trusting! The fox can't believe his luck so he asks the goose to go for a stroll. The goose, with her angelic face, cannot refuse. Suddenly, a little chick pops up warning the protagonist: "That is NOT a good idea!" All too late! This fox is on a roll and next, he invites the goose back to his house tucked away in the deep, dark woods, and...the goose says YES! "THAT IS NOT A GOOD IDEA!" - now, LOTS of little chicks are shouting warnings! But...just who are they trying to help? The fox or the goose? Beautiful watercolour and pencil illustrations, punctuated by all-black pages with delicately framed text, plays off the truly hilarious story and marks an exciting new visual approach for Mo. The suspense! The thrills! A marvel of perfect comic timing and hugely appealing characters - who will you be rooting for?
