The duck was in the pond. The pond has a fence around it. The duck was swimming in the pond. And one morning the duck was in the pond and the fox was outside. The fox said, ?Can we eat lunch?? But the duck said that they can?t eat lunch until the fox gets a table, plates, cups, and a tablecloth. The fox goes away to get the things. The tablecloth is red. The bull that is inside the fence saw the tablecloth and ran! And the fox had to run away. The fox didn?t eat the duck and the duck stayed in the pond.
I think the duck was smart, because he didn?t want to eat with the fox. The duck did not want to go into the fox?s stomach! The duck made the fox run away. I thought the book might be sad because the fox might eat the duck for lunch, but then he didn?t! My favorite part was when the fox had to run away, because the duck was smarter than the fox.
I think my best friends should read the book of The Hungry Fox and the Foxy Duck in the library, because I liked it.
