Life proclaimed this long-unavailable classic the "first authentically colloquial and breezily American nursery rhyme" when it was published in 1971. Now it is back for new generations to enjoy!

All of Clyde Waterson's verses have what School Library Journal calls the "foot-stomping rhythm of an American square dance call." Some feel cozy and nostalgic; others are silly. Many evoke the pleasures of changing seasons. But they all keep readers and young listeners entertained, page after page. Wendy Watson's fully imagined and finely detailed pictures of the splendid fox family, at home and on joyous outings, will make children giggle. As The New York Times Book Reviewexplains, "Put it all together -- rhymes and pictures -- and the book is like a breath of fresh air."

Right now I feel that Father Fox and his pennyrhymes ought to be admitted into the select company of other great foxes. Maybe I'm a little impulsive; things haven't been too grand in children's books lately. I think of Aesop, of Burgess's Reddy Fox and Brer Fox, Reynard and Foxywoxy from HennyPenny and The Fox Went Out on a Chilly Night by Peter Spier, for example. Illustrated by Wendy Watson.

A Few of my favorite childhood memories are the many times My Aunt read this fabulous children's book to me. I must have had her read it many times. She loves this book and we still quote it, and I still read my copy all the time, even though I am eighteen. Now My Aunt's Step-Son has a baby boy and My Aunt is desperate because she wants this same book for her Step-Grandson, but sadly, it is Out of Print. I suggest that anybody who wants to see a re-print edition, click on the link "e-mail a friend about this book," and then send a message to [email protected] and in the space where you add a personal message, please indicate how much you want the book back in print.

I was sooooo completely delighted to find this old copy of Father Foxe's Penny Rhymes! It brings back thee BEST memories of many hours that I spent with my daughter when she was 5 & 6. We would rock back and forth in this beautiful antique white rocking chair keeping time to the rhymes. It was a very special time, she is now 45 ad will soon be expecting her first grandchild, this was a gift to her on her birthday so she can spend those special times which I would imagine will be doubly "SPECIAL" as she will remember her times with her mother and create new special times with her first grandchild!!! Who knows how far this simple little children's book will reach. I so wish the author could read this and know how much joy this book has provided!

This beautiful delightful book was an old favorite when my children were small and we practically learned it by heart. Our book was lost somehow and it was out of print and I was so thrilled that it had been reprinted, although I wish the book size were bigger since the illustrations are so detailed.

This book is magical. The rhymes are irresistible. Our family of seven grown children still quote the rhymes and tell them to their own children. Wendy Watson's drawings are charming. We made up our own songs to the rhymes and later discovered Clyde Watson had put several of them to melodies in Father Fox's Feast of Songs. My kids still sing the ones I made up and Clyde's. "Belly and Tubs" became a rocking floor game for two feet to partner's feet and hands held until "the boat tipped over and they tumbled out".

I got this book for my mom. It was a favorite of hers that she read to us when we were young. She was very very pleased.

I had bought this for my son 40 years ago and now for my granddaughter. It is my all time favorite childrens book!

I was wondering why a used copy of this classic was so expensive... the product is indeed an orginal, probably from the first soft cover printing in the 1970s, and has no marks on it (even has the original price sticker of $1.50!), but is yellowing a bit and musty, which is nice for old books.

So, here is the point, I was hoping to get this a gift for a new mom and daughter, but it really is a collector's item, which is not really appropriate, either for the family or for the book.

Maybe there should be a separate category in Amazon: new, used, and vintage/collectors. Maybe I am just naive and should have guessed from the price ($87). So now I have a lovely artifact to re-sell someday, but probably not the gift I was looking for.....

No idea why this is not just still in print.
I recently purchased this book to replace our original copy that was damaged a few years ago in a basement flood. It was our daughter's favorite as a toddler. When this gently used one arrived she, at age 38, sat and reread it - recalling how much she loved it and still does. These were the first poems she memorized to recite to others. The details of the photos are a delight.
