The four big chickens who were afraid of everything in their wellreceived debut, "Big Chickens," are now feeling all cooped up, so they set off to find the farmhouse. But where, the hapless hens wonder, is it? First they find a doghouse (loud barking ); then they run into a tractor ("ewww," dirty ); and then they stomp into the barn (wild horses ). Who knew the farmhouse was right under their beaks the whole time? Sidesplitting silliness abounds in this second riotously funny read-aloud by Leslie Helakoski, once again illustrated with Henry Cole's boisterous art.
