KIRKUS REVIEW

The words of an old folk song are given pictorial dimensions in the lovely full color doublespreads of the New England countryside with its old houses, barns, covered bridges, etc. Alternating with the colored panoramas are amusing line sketches of some of the people, the animals, the scenes the fox encountered as he dashed across the fields with the goose and the duck he took from the farmer's barnyard. A beguiling book -- and the end paper carries the words and music of the song it revives.
