    This was a funny rework of the Aesop fable Fox and the Grapes Even though Fox views himself as a great strategist, he s unable to come up with a successful plan to get the grapes that are hanging in a tree He also is unable to recognize good advise when he hears it, because every animal that he asks has an alternate solution that he won t listen to despite it being a good idea I m going to assume that the grapes are growing in the tree, not from the tree Anyway, when he finally runs out of This was a funny rework of the Aesop fable Fox and the Grapes Even though Fox views himself as a great strategist, he s unable to come up with a successful plan to get the grapes that are hanging in a tree He also is unable to recognize good advise when he hears it, because every animal that he asks has an alternate solution that he won t listen to despite it being a good idea I m going to assume that the grapes are growing in the tree, not from the tree Anyway, when he finally runs out of ideas he declares that the grapes must be sour rather than let someone else solve the problem He storms off and all the other animals get some grapes their own way Very funny story

    Fox devises a plan to get some grapes hanging from a tree With the help of bear, then beaver, then porcupine, then possum Fox isn t able to reach the grapes Finally possum ends up tossing the grapes down from the tree after many failed attempts.

    Pretty darn funny Goes to show that the fox isn t always the smartest marble in the bag And that it is important to listen to others.

    I do love Barry Moser s animal faces Palatini writes really fun folktale retellings.

    On the long side for reading aloud to kids, but has a good number of characters if you are into using character voices My boys like the parts that get repeated multiple times like, voil , grapes and, no grapes They like it well enough to sit and go through the story by themselves.

    The ISD students quickly figure out that Fox isn t very nice or very smart He doesn t speak well to bear and beaver, and if he would just listen to the other animals, he would figure our that there can be several ways to solve a problem, particularly with team work.
