Fox and Hen Together

B%C3%A9atrice Rodriguez. Enchanted Lion (Consortium, dist.), $14.95 (32p) ISBN 978-1-59270-109-4
Who says married life is dull? This sequel to The Chicken Thief has as much action and drama as its predecessor, and is just as weirdly wonderful as it moves from courtship (of sorts) to cohabitation. When the cupboard is bare, Hen—no stay-at-home mom-to-be—entrusts her egg to Fox and sets out to catch some dinner, accompanied by an intrepid, scene-stealing crab (who has enough charm to carry his own book). She snags a huge fish, but quickly gets embroiled in a tug-of-war with a vicious bird and then a serpentine sea monster. And Rodriguez doesn't stop there, giving readers an emotionally charged (but happy) ending. Ages 4–8. (June)
