Fox & Hen Together by Beatrice Rodriguez

Fox and Hen are married and expecting a baby. Their only problem is an empty fridge. Hen leaves the egg with Fox and goes off with Crab to catch (as in fish) some food. Fishing turns out to be more involved than Hen imagined. Will she ever make it back to Fox and their baby?

What I thought: Rodriguez really understands the concept of wordless picture books. Her illustrations are perfect for adding your own narration. She shows the action so clearly. My favorite illustration is Fox and Hen having dinner with their baby and Crab at the end of the story. Read my review of Fox and Hen's first adventure in The Chicken Thief.
