"Shoo!" said Earl.

"Shoo! Shoo!" said Pearl.

"Cluck! Cluck! Cluck!" said Chicken.

Earl and Pearl are planting pumpkins. Chicken wants to help. But it seems like the only thing Chicken is good at is getting in the way.

Then grasshoppers invade the pumpkin patch, and Earl and Pearl can do nothing to stop them. Suddenly it's up to Chicken to save the day!

This funny and satisfying book is a delightful treat for children just starting to read.

Praise For Chicken Said, "Cluck!"

“A satisfying story with conflict and resolution, action and emotion . . . A gift for emerging readers—and not just during pumpkin season.”
-The Horn Book
