Fox Walked Alone

Have you ever wondered just how the animals got to Noah's Ark? One morning Fox awakens sensing that something is different. He goes outside and sees a line of animals going by. Curious, he decides to tag along - not to join them, but just to watch from a distance. He is followed by a pair of ravens who comment on his strange behaviour. Along the way he meets bears, porcupines, tigers. . . and he sets free a couple of doves in a cage. The animals walk, sleep, and walk some more. Finally they come into sight of a big wooden ship - and there, outside, is a young lady fox. "You're the one I'm waiting for!" she exclaims, and they all tumble into the ark. Beautifully illustrated in Plasticine by Barbara Reid. Paperback. 3+ years.
