Welcome Home! by Ludwig Bemelmans

Welcome Home!

After a poem by Beverley Boggert. An odd plot, the fox, on a sort of drag hunt, stops and washes his paws so that he can escape home, but the subject allows wonderful deep reds: horses streaming through the forest, confused hounds, and a cozy family den. Note: This book has been sold.
