One of my favorite read aloud storybooks. Good narrative story with pictures to match.

She's the queen of chicken-chasing all right. Only one chicken can escape her. But she's going to figure out how to catch that Miss Hen! Unless her careful surveillance reveals previously unknown information that requires a change of plans, of course. I can't decide what I like most about this book. The facial expressions of the main character? The collage-style art, especially her skirt with the big button? Or the number of times you turn the page and get a giant SQUAWK from a chicken? My seven year old son was skeptical about this one but he ended up loving it. Several times in the next few days he'd start laughing about something he was remembering from it.

Great book. The language is fun as are the illustrations. 3 1/2 year old loved it.
