An egg cracks--"crickety crack"--and out comes a little yellow chick He peeps, he cheeps, he eats, and at the very end, he sleeps under Mommy's wing--"zzzzzz." Each eye-popping page in this interactive novelty book invites the reader to jump in and play with the chick, and Ed Vere's art is appealing and brightly colored .
Ed Vere's new pop-up book is the perfect Easter gift for all your little chicks.
Praise for Chick: “Humor, bold colors, and clever engineering make for a simple, memorable package.”—Publishers Weekly “Instead of a pop-up, the “elimination” scene offers a turning wheel of pellets, and the final sleep vignette has baby tucked under mom’s liftable wing. Toddlers are an ideal audience for this lark.”—School Library Journal
