Following up on the much-loved Ernest & Celestine, these warm, funny hand-drawn tales about life on an animal farm are adapted from Renner’s own acclaimed graphic novel about a fox who struggles to live up to his reputation as a carnivore. After failing miserably at stealing chickens, he swipes and sits on three eggs, hoping for a meal. Despite his hunger, he can’t quite bring himself to eat the newly hatched chicks he’s falling in love with. Other characters include a duck who has no idea how to swim, a lizard who speaks Mandarin, a stork who is too lazy to deliver babies, and a grumpy frog. Age 8+.
