Hidden Gems - Children's Fiction

Chicken BigChicken Big
by Keith Graves
(ePUB & Kindle)

On a teeny little farm, in an itty-bitty coop, a very small hen laid a big, giant egg. And out of this egg came one big, humongous . . . something. 'It's big!' clucked the little rooster. 'It's enormous!' clucked the small chicken. 'It's an elephant!' peeped the smallest chicken. 'Run for your lives!' they cried. No matter how they try, these clueless chickens can't make sense of the gigantic new member of their family - until he saves the day. With wacky, laugh-out- loud humor and silliness to spare, this BIG twist on the classic Chicken Little story lends a whole new perspective to what it means to be chicken.

Chris Van Dusen, the creator of Down to the Sea with Mr. Magee, has filled this new adventure with charming illustrations and a playful, rhyming text.
