Gimme Cracked Corn & I Will Share

By Kevin O'Malley; Kevin O'Malley (Illustrator)

Walker & Company, Hardcover, 9780802796844, 32pp.

Publication Date: August 21, 2007


When Chicken dreams of buried treasure, he and his pal fly the coop and set out on a journey to find the golden corn, in this scrambled retelling of a classic Eastern European folktale. Their eggs-traordinary adventure takes them across the road, through the woods, and to a distant barn where they hear of pigs that can fly and dreams that can feed the imagination. Packed with word play and over twenty puns, thanks to Kevin O'Malley's trademark humor, Chicken's adventure reminds us that sometimes we need to leave home to realize the things we really treasure can be found right back where we started.
