One Fine Day


One Fine Day by Nonny Hogrogian is a retelling of an Armenian folktale about a thirsty red fox that won the 1971 Caldecott Honor medal. In the story, when the fox steals milk from an old woman she chops off his tail! The fox spends the rest of his day going from place to place fetching one thing and another in order to get more milk for the old woman so she will sew his tail back on. This humorous tale about a fox and the bargains he makes features full-color illustrations that will help young readers easily follow along with the story.
