I received this as a Goodreads First Reads book. What a cute story! The rhyming and the story line were wonderful. I love the illustrations. My 16 month old really enjoys this book, as she is big into rhyming sounds.

Another Ferdinand Fox rhyming book. A lovely read with my grandchildren, they love these rhyming stories and find them fun to follow. Karen Inglis knows how to keep the little ones entertained with her tales.
I find reading with them is such an important and enjoyable part of their development and their introduction into reading, as well as them enjoying the illustrations.

This is a lovely book to share at bedtime with your child, it is a great rhyming story with bright and colourful illustrations. My son really enjoyed it and we have read it together a number of times already, I think he wishes his dreams were as good as the fox's in the story!

What a cute little book, I am impressed with the rhyme structure and solid pictures. I would have liked a little more excitement, but my son loves it, and that is what matters.
