Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3–With the same gentle humor and sensitivity to children that she showed in Guji Guji (Kane/Miller, 2004), Chen introduces a young featherless chicken. Not only does this poor creature get cold when the wind blows, but he's also afflicted with miserable allergies. One day, he sees four beautifully feathered chickens on their way to go boating. He asks if he can join them, but they shun his unadorned looks. Then, thanks to a muddy puddle, bits of this and that, and a jaunty tin-can hat, he is transformed into a beautifully adorned fowl, and the others invite him to come along. During a flap about which chicken is the most handsome, the newly fancy fellow lets out a terrible sneeze, and the boat capsizes. The dunking leaves all five chickens featherless and frolicking together. The chickens' comic expressions and their colorful feathers are perfectly rendered in Chen's soft palate of earth tones and subtle splashes of color on thick, creamy paper. The text is set in a typewriterlike font that adds to the style and overall charm of this memorable outing.–Genevieve Gallagher, Murray Elementary School, Charlottesville, VA

Format: Hardcover
I bought this book on a whim because the illustrations were so beautiful, and I liked the artistic nature of the book itself (nice thick quality pages, unique font style, wonderful artwork). It turned out to be a funny story that my 6 year old daughter adores. She immediatly sympathized with the main character, the featherless chicken, who is excluded by the more beautiful feathered birds. But, in the end, following series of funny events, the beautiful birds end up exposed and naked in the elements, just like the featherless bird. I think this book sends a good message--we are all the same underneath, those who act uppity may one day find themselves stripped of their false sense of superiority, so be connected and open to others no matter what.

As a mother of 2 small children and an education/child development major, I LOVE this book!
It teaches small children that appearance is just a superficial characteristic..
They both love it 5 and 7 years old...
Not yo mention, the illustrations are beautiful!

I adored this little parable about self-consciousness. The naked little chickens are appealingly illustrated, and the wacky events make readers laugh as well as think.
