Illustrated by Barry Moser.

Abstract: Retells the fable of a frustrated fox that, after many tries to reach a high bunch of grapes, decides they must be sour anyway. Illustrations rendered in watercolor.

Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, 2009.


  1. Loved the characterizations given to the animals.

  2. What about the newest Moser picture book "Once Upon a Twice"? It's cover is stunning, the interior dark and beautiful, and its gotten starred reviews, etc.

    Is it on the list yet?

  3. Thanks for the suggestion, Leslie! There are so many great books published, it's hard to get to them all -- we really appreciate your help. Look for Once Upon a Twice to be posted soon.
