Café Tip of the Tail

In Café Tip of the tail, Fox has a new hobby. He collects tail feathers and put them in an album. It is a difficult hobby. So far he has a collection of two feathers; Hen and Strange Hen. To better the situation, Fox and Piglet open a café for migrating birds under the old oak tree. Payment: one tail feather from every bird.

The café is a great success. The customers are very satisfied, and Fox is very contempt with the result. But all of a sudden the Great Green Slooth comes along, and everything is changed.

"Get ready for a great big laugh for the entire family. The author and illustrator really hit the bull´s-eye with this one."

"The illustrations in this book are just precious. So ugly, cool, weird and funny that young readers flip eagerly through the book. Kids love shenanigans, and this book is full of it, both in story and images."
