for A Flea in the Ear by Stephen Wyllie and Ken Brown
In this spirited animal fable, a big spotted hound--the faithful guardian of a chicken coop--is plagued by pesky fleas. So when a wily fox proposes a surefire cure, the dog foolishly abandons the hens in his eagerness to put an end to the miserable itching. Naturally, the sneaky fox and hapless hens are gone when the poor dog returns, but the dog contrives a clever plan to outfox the hen thief--with very satisfying results. Full color.
