Foxly is a hungry fox in the countryside, and he can’t wait to eat his dinner. This picturebook uses the theme of appetite and dinner time to challenge our assumptions about who eats and who eats whom. Each spread reveals Foxly talking to another animal in the countryside about dinner time. Does Foxly want to eat these animals? Or does he want to eat with them? Davey’s tale encourages us to revise our expectations, and opens up a conversation about explicit and implicit cultural themes: vegetarianism, prejudice, and social eating. Educators may want to note that this text has also been published by the same publisher as a version containing a conventional worded narrative.
