This is a fun, rhyming, illustrated story of the river riddle that I remember puzzling over as a child at school. A boy with a bale of hay, a sheep and a fox need to cross the river in a boat built for two. How they get to the market on the other side all in one piece, without something being sacrificed for lunch, is the focus of the story.
Tortop’s bold and colourful digital illustrations magnify the humour of Dewar’s flawless rhyming verse. The judicious use of white space and arrangement of story elements on the page and across pages heightens the reader’s sense of curiosity, and allows room for children to predict the outcome – because we all know the joy in a riddle is trying to work it out yourself!
