Hattie the Hen spots something in the bushes, but none of her friends seem to care in this charming Classic Board Book by bestselling author Mem Fox!
“I can see a nose and two eyes in the bushes!” cries Hattie.
But nobody is listening. Not goose. Not pig. Not horse. Not cow. She tries again and again to warn her friends, but nobody seems to care!
Little ones will enjoy happy shivers of anticipation as Hattie spots a fox in the bushes and the tale builds. Hattie’s friends are in for a big surprise when they realize that what she’s been saying is true!
