Lousy Rotten Stinkin Grapes by Margie Palatini and illustrated by Barry Moser. Fox makes a plan. After all, he believes himself to be sly. Clever. Smart. Fox eyes a bunch of tantalizing grapes hanging high in a tree and decides those juicy morsels should be for him! So he sets out to find a way to get to them using his sly, clever, and smart ideas to come up with a plan. After all he is a fox. With his clever plans, and the help from Bear, and Beaver, and Porcupine, and Possum, Fox comes up with complicated plans for getting the grapes. Will Fox get those juicy grapes, or will his plans fall apart and leave him frustrated? Read this twist to the Aesop’s fable “The Fox and the Grapes.” The bright and colorful water color illustrations help to create a silly twist to a popular story.
