I grabbed this book off of the library shelf just on a whim. I didn't even read it before I checked it out, so I am so glad that I got so lucky! My niece, nephew, and I all really enjoyed this book. The story was good, and the writing was even better. It was a real pleasure for me to read out loud--it just had a wonderful "voice" to it.
The illustrations were tons of fun, and they were beautiful, as well. Who knew that a chicken could be so full of heart, charm, and expression? Just a wonderful book!
