Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

“Early in the morning, down on the farm, a new day is dawning, peaceful and calm,” calm that is until Hen counts her chicks and discovers that one has disappeared—again. She finds the babe in the middle of the farmyard, stuck fast in the mud. What follows is a new take on the classic “Enormous Turnip” story, with Clarke offering an exuberant, rhyming romp complete with familiar farm characters that Hen enlists to help free her chick. Cat, Dog, Sheep, Horse, and even Farmer take a turn pushing and pulling “again and again,” only to become stuck themselves. This colorfully illustrated tale, featuring broadly sketched characters in bold colors, will surely be a read-aloud favorite. The surprise gatefold near the end of the book will delight children, who will surely see themselves in  Chick—who really wasn’t stuck; he just wanted company to play in the mud. Preschool-Grade 1. --Shauna Yusko

He wants to read it every night before bed.

My 3 year old son just loves this book. He wants to read it every night before bed. The rhyming and repetition is perfect for the 2-5 year range and the pictures are entertaining. This is definitely a favorite in our house.

This has definitely become a favorite in our house. My two year old loves the story, but her older cousins (7 and 9) enjoyed it just as much as she did. Great repetition and rhyming with a surprise ending. Makes my toddler laugh every time and enjoys the anticipation of what is to come. Fun illustrations and lots to look at for a little one who doesn't always have time to sit and read - really captures her attention.

This sounded like a funny story and got a good review from Booklist, which I surprised me when I saw the first verse rhymed "farm" with "calm." The meter is off in the second verse and the third verse doesn't even attempt to rhyme. The poor and/or irregular rhyme and meter continue throughout. The art is great but the text doesn't measure up.

Little chick is stuck in the mud and Hen's in a panic to get him out; instead she finds herself stuck. The cat overhears her distress and comes to their aid to wind-up in the same predicament. Everyone that attempts to get them unstuck finds themselves stuck! Turns out chick has a surprise in store for everyone.

This adorable book is a rollicking, rhyming, good time. The illustrations are bold and expressive which successfully conveys Hen's alarm in a humorous way. The opaque colors are nicely shaded to offer just enough detail to elevate this book beyond the toddler set.

As a teaching tool, it would be an excellent book to highlight the short "u" sound.

Well done.
