One of twenty in the series, found near the counter as we were settling up a large order of books. Sixteen pages with standard computer art. This version starts with an excellent illustration, on the cover and then reversed on the title-page and then reversed again on the first pair of pages: a fruit the size of a kidney bean bounces off of the top of Little Chicken's head. She concludes immediately that the sky is falling. Hen and Cock are the first to be included in her fear and join her as she runs to tell the king. Duck, Drake, and Turkey all likewise ask to come along. Fox says he knows the king and will take them to him. We learn late that the king is a lion. The fox takes them to the lion's den, but they never get to the lion. The fox devours them! Surprise!
