"Who's afraid of the Big Bad Fox? No one, it seems. The fox dreams of being the terror of the barnyard. But no one is intimidated by him, least of all the hens? When he picks a fight with one, he always ends up on the losing end. Even the wolf, the most fearsome beast of the forest, can't teach him how to be a proper predator. It looks like the fox will have to spend the rest of his life eating turnips. But then the wolf comes up with the perfect scheme. If the fox steals some eggs, he could hatch the chicks himself and raise them to be a plump, juicy chicken dinner. Unfortunately, this plan falls apart when three adorable chicks hatch and call the fox Mommy" -- cover flap.

So Funny!! As much about parenting as getting along with others, being true to yourself, etc.
When Fox steals a hen's eggs to eat and the wolf tells him to sit on them for a while, you know what's going to happen. It is hilarious.
The main issue I have with this story is how the fox has to put up with being basically tortured and maimed in order to stay near the chicks.
