    Funny satire inspired by one of my favorite fables Beautifully illustrated The only flaw is the implication that porcupines throw their uills which they don't Fox gets what he deserves

    Aesop's classic fable of the fox who turns up his nose in scorn when the grapes he desires prove to be beyond his reach is considerably expanded in this humorous retelling by Margie Palatini whose other revisionist picture book adventures include The Three Silly Billies and Three French Hens A Holiday Tale Enlisting the aid of Bear Beaver Porcupine and Possum Fox puts his master plan into action only to see it fail again and again His assistants have some thoughts but Fox isn't interested After all he's Fox Sly Clever SmartWith an amusing narrative and droll illustrations from Barry Moser I particularly appreciated Bear's many comical expressions Lousy Rotten Stinkin' Grapes is sure to appeal to young readers who will enjoy seeing Fox get exactly what he deserves Palatini manages to turn fable into story while preserving the moral of the original Aesop lovers will definitely want to take a look at this one as will anyone who enjoys a good animal tale

    I don't want to say I didn't like it because it was entertaining In addition I don't even want to say It was okay because I choked on the first line of the first page which states grapes hanging from a vine growing high on a tree I might be wrong but I'm pretty sure grapevines do not grow up into trees From the very beginning my disbelief was suspendedAnother reviewer pointed out that porcupines do not aim and shoot their uills These two faults will reuire a knowing adult to correct the misinformation Other fanciful imaginative concepts such as foxes drawing diagrams and animals stacking themselves into the air will certainly be understood by children as not real However these other two inaccuracies might be perceived as factual Unfortunately some children will read this on their own and be left with inaccurate information Too bad otherwise this could have been an entertaining introduction to Aesop's fables

    This was a funny rework of the Aesop fable Fox and the Grapes Even though Fox views himself as a great strategist he's unable to come up with a successful plan to get the grapes that are hanging in a tree He also is unable to recognize good advise when he hears it because every animal that he asks has an alternate solution that he won't listen to despite it being a good idea I'm going to assume that the grapes are growing in the tree not from the tree Anyway when he finally runs out of ideas he declares that the grapes must be sour rather than let someone else solve the problem He storms off and all the other animals get some grapes their own way Very funny story

    A funny twist on the Aesop's Fable of the Fox and the grapes Fox has found a tree from which a vine of beautiful clusters of grapes hang and using his brains he is determined to get them down to eat Finding that he can't reach them with his best jump he enlists the help of some forest friends He builds a tower of animals to try to launch off of but to no avail Each starts to offer better advice but each time the fox explains that he is the one with the brains and that they ought to listen to him


  6. Erica Erica says:

    Fox devises a plan to get some grapes hanging from a tree With the help of bear then beaver then porcupine then possum Fox isn't able to reach the grapes Finally possum ends up tossing the grapes down from the tree after many failed attempts


  7. Elizabeth S Elizabeth S says:

    Pretty darn funny Goes to show that the fox isn't always the smartest marble in the bag And that it is important to listen to others


  8. Maggi Rohde Maggi Rohde says:

    I do love Barry Moser's animal faces Palatini writes really fun folktale retellings


  9. Faith Faith says:

    On the long side for reading aloud to kids but has a good number of characters if you are into using character voices My boys like the parts that get repeated multiple times like voilà grapes and no grapes They like it well enough to sit and go through the story by themselves


  10. Steph Steph says:

    The ISD students uickly figure out that Fox isn't very nice or very smart He doesn't speak well to bear and beaver and if he would just listen to the other animals he would figure our that there can be several ways to solve a problem particularly with team work
