A very weary and hungry fox happens upon a little rabbit tending his vegetable garden. The kind little rabbit invites the hungry fox to stay for supper, an invitation he eagerly accepts. All the while, Fox dreams of having rabbit stew for his supper. As Fox helps prepare all the vegetables he gathered, a scrumptious aroma fills the air!

Book Reviews:

Five Stars!  'A Refreshing and Lighthearted Read' - Readers' Favorite by Michelle Robertson: 
A young rabbit has prepared a garden watching it grow and prosper with yummy vegetables and herbs. A hungry fox eyes the little rabbit tending to his garden, with only one thing on his mind: Having Rabbit Stew for Dinner!  Little does the fox know that when he offers to help the rabbit carry in his harvest of vegetables and herbs, that his dinner will be the complete opposite of the menu he originally had in mind. The book offers fun and vibrant pictures to enhance the imagination of its readers.  I absolutely loved this story. It was a refreshing and lighthearted read.
5.0 out of 5 stars “Great Story!” By This Kid Reviews Books 
I think this book has a wonderful tale of friendship! Fox is SO hungry and Rabbit looks SO tasty. Fox helps Rabbit garden and Rabbit is kind to Fox. In the end Fox decides the vegetable stew is much better than Rabbit stew! Cute illustrations and great story!
