Brimming with silliness and the kind of slapstick humor small children love, here's a rollicking read-aloud with an uplifting message and a very satisfying ending. Henry Cole's hilarious artwork captures all the sly humor.
Henry Cole has illustrated more than fifty books for children, including "And Tango Makes Three", "Oink?", and "Little Bo in France". A former elementary school teacher, he now writes and paints full time.
"With word play reminiscent of Margie Palatini at her best, Helakoski takes four timorous chickens into, then out of, the literal and figurative woods. [R]ousing." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
