"Rosie's Walk" by Pat Hutchins (Random House Children's Books, Red Fox Edition, London 2001) - Part 2

A classic book, published in Britain originally in 1968 by The Bodley Head Children's Books. It was the author's first book which led to dozens of others and a very distinguished career as a writer and an illustrator. Here's a link to a comprehensive biography on Pat Hutchins (born 1942 in Yorkshire) and a catalogue of her other books:

It's so great to watch the fox going from one disaster to another while Rosie walks unflappable along the farmyard. If only it was like that in the adult world, the bad guys always getting caught and punished before causing any mischief - the bankers for example...


  1. I would love to see a load of bankers chased away by a swarm of angry bees! Thanks for cheering up my morning with that image. Love this book so much. :)

  2. Angry bees would be too good for them - scorpions would do nicely. In fact, that might make a good picture book story one day..

  3. I used to be a preschool teacher and this was one of my favourite-beginning-of-the-year reads. The kids ALWAYS loved the bee retribution at the end.
