Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-4–A shrewd observation of human nature, this tale combines elements of "Chicken Little" and the game of Telephone. After a chicken loses a feather while grooming herself, she notes aloud how her plucking has contributed to her beauty. The tongue-in-cheek narration, which is amusing in its modernity, describes how the comment is seized and passed along, becoming ever more dramatic as it travels. Overheard by Mama Owl, the tale is relayed to the pigeon house, crowed by the rooster, picked up by the bats, and finally returned to the original coop. In its final form, it features five chickens, madly plucking "to prove which one of them wasted away the most because of their love for the rooster." The bold, flat acrylic images, outlined in black, are presented in framed sequences that vary in size and frequency. This design suggests a newsreel or newspaper account. Key phrases are enlarged and printed in white against the vivid backgrounds, furthering the effect. One of Andersen's lesser-known works, the tale last appeared as It's Perfectly True! (Holiday, 1988; o.p.), illustrated by Janet Stevens. Children in the primary grades are just the right age to understand the effects of gossip and to learn to question what they hear and read. Either version provides a memorable vehicle for that message.–Wendy Lukehart, Washington DC Public Library

Format: Hardcover
A traditional Hans Christian Andersen story translated by Mus White, "For Sure! For Sure!" is the story of what happens when a simple comment is overheard and passed along by gossip. After a feather falls out of a chicken she notes that she looks "gorgeous". Another chicken overhears it and with a slight embellishment passes it along. The owls overhear it and pass it along to the pigeons who pass it along to the bats, etc. At each stage it changes so that when it comes full circle back to the original chicken she doesn't even know it was about her and she in turn also passes it along to the newspaper. A humorous story that children will love it also provides the opportunity to discuss the problems of gossip. "For Sure! For Sure!" is recommended for the young reader or as a read aloud book for parents.

I was a bit shocked when my son and I sat down to read his library book. This book, in my opinion, was not a good book for this young age. One of the pages has blood splatted all over it. It is about talking about others (gossiping) and how the females want to look their best for the males. It also states that they get into a blood battle!
