This week we will read another poem from Crazy Mayonnaisy Mum by Julia Donaldson

What does Mrs Fox think the farmers will do to the children?
How did the foxes escape?

How did the family react to Mr Fox losing his tail?
What did Mr Fox do when the shovel burst through the ceiling?
How does Mrs Fox feel about Mr Fox? How do you know?

What does ‘tenderly’ mean?
Why was there no food for the foxes that night?
Is Mr Fox fantastic? Explain your answer.
