"Dinner With Fox" By Stephen Wyllie, Pictures By Korky Paul (published by Tango Books, UK, 1995), Part 2


A very, very funny book, but grim too as there are quite a few casualties in order to perfect this dinner! A fox has to think creatively when he realises that he has no food left in his kitchen cupboards - so he invites neighbours to join him for dinner...

Vintage Korky Paul(born 1951) illustrations beautifully executed and packed with visual jokes and amazing details. I have several of his books, including his more famous "Winnie The Witch", "The Cat That Scratched", "The Rascally Cake" and "The Duck That Had No Luck". Unfortunately I managed to lose my favourite of his, "The Dog That Dug" some ten years ago but I will eventually buy it again! Here is the link to his own website: http://www.korkypaul.com/index.html for his biography and a long list of published books. And this is a small article on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korky_Paul
