She longed for adventure.
So she left her home and ventured out into the wide world.
The pleasures and perils she met proved plentiful: marauding pirates on the majestic seas, a ferocious lion under the bright lights of the big top, a mysterious stranger in an exotic and bustling bazaar.
Yet in the face of such daunting danger, our heroine . . .
She was brave.
She was fearless.
She was feathered.
She was a chicken.
A not-so-chicken chicken.

“DiCamillo’s brisk, comic narrative crackles with read-aloud savoriness. Bliss creates a thrilling sense of place.”
