Henrietta loves to read. When she clucks buk, buk, buk at the library, the librarian knows exactly what to recommend. Then Henrietta decides to write a book. With the help of her three aunties, she hatches a plot. But when Henrietta publishes her story, the critics say she's laid an egg! Is this the end of Henrietta's career as an author?
About the Author
Mary Jane and Herm Auch have collaborated on more than ten picture books written by Mary Jane. Both artists used digital techniques to create the illustrations in this book. The Auchs live outside of Rochester, New York, and keep a small flock of chickens.
Praise For The Plot Chickens…
"The illustrations, a combination of oil paints and digital technology, are bold and colorful. The pictures are busy, with Henrietta at her typewriter while her friends cavort around her. There are imagined scenes in cloud shapes, word balloons, and jokes aplenty. A droll chicken with a repeating line adds to the humor. This offering works on two levels. It’s a funny picture book that could be used as a manual on writing."—School Library Journal
