What's One Fine Day About

Publisher Summary

Awarded the Caldecott Medal for the most distinguished picture book of 1971 “One fine day a fox traveled through the great forest. When he reached the other side he was very thirsty.” The jaunty red fox stole milk from an old farm woman, lost his tail under the annoyed woman’s knife, and spent the day bargaining to get it back. This humorous retelling of a favorite Armenian folktale is a story small children will follow and “read along” with ease.

4.5 / 7.0

This little fox gets in trouble when he drinks up an old woman’s milk. In order to pay her back to get his tail back, he has to go through quite the chain of events and favors. I think this book full of a ripple effect of events is alright, but not one that I love or want to read again and again, though I did like how it displayed that one kind person willing to give without receiving makes all the difference.
