From the Publisher
Crabby Cratchitt has a farm . . . and a hen that won't stop clucking! Crabby schemes and plots and tries everything she can to put an end to the eternal clucking, but nothing works. The noisy hen won't leave old Crabby alone. But when the hen falls silent at last, could it be that the farm is a little too quiet for Crabby, after all? A familiar rhythm, clever rhymes, and hilariously expressive illustrations deliver a surprise ending to this rollicking, laugh-out-loud story about a unique friendship.
