When four big chickens see a wolf sneaking near their coop, they run into the woods to hide. But for a bunch of big chickens, running away from danger isn?t as easy as it looks. As they continue on their way, they wonder: What if they get stuck in a ditch? What if they hit an iceberg in the lake? What if they step into a cow patty? Eewww! Brimming with silliness and the kind of slapstick humor small children love, here?s a rollicking read-aloud with an uplifting message and a very satisfying ending.
Leslie Helakoski lives in Lawton, Michigan. Henry Cole lives in Washington, D.C.

Editorial Reviews

The portly, partly clothed hens make comical figures in this tribute to chicken power.
