Filled withbold illustrations andwry humor, this twist on the ugly duckling tale places a chicken in the lead role. The chicken has no feathers and he longs to playwith theother beautifulchickens in the yard, but they turn him down, ridiculing him for his bare skin. When he discovers a creative camouflage for his paltry plumage, however, the other chickens allow him to join them on a boat ride, never expecting that a surprising accident will change the way they see themselves and the (formerly) featherless chicken.
