On a two page spread sit the deceivingly simple words: "On Monday, Farmer Greenstalk dropped his watch down the well". Poor, Farmer Greenstalk. There he stands, staring mournfully down into a great deep well, a look of sad resignation on his face. The average reader probably wouldn't pay too much attention to the chicken standing on the far left page. Its wing planted firmly where its ear would be, the chicken obviously understands the man's distress. Why do I say that? Because when we turn the page we are bombarded with thirty-one swimsuit-wearing, snorkel-sporting, deepsea-diving chickens under the words, "Chickens to the rescue!". Turn the page and the wet but satisfied birds are walking off while Farmer Greenstalk holds in his hands a damp watch. "Those are some chickens!". Indeed. That was just Monday, though. On Tuesday Mrs. Greenstalk was too tired to make dinner. "Chickens to the rescue!". A scurring flock take over the kitchen, whipping up various concoctions.Read more ›
The illustrations are hysterical, with the chickens frantically holding up yield signs to stop duck from stealing the truck, with them putting out a trampoline to save cow, with them scolding the dog for eating Jeffrey's homework.
Eventually, they sleep right through a rescue - but they've earned it.
It's very funny, especially if you're sure to yell every time you get to the tagline - CHICKENS! TO! THE RESCUUUUUUUUUUUE!
a preschooler would have to be led to what was supposed to be funny on each page.
I wanted the writing and illustrations to be more obvious. However, the grandfather and
granddaughter (age 4) who received the book roared and reach for the book frequently.
I stand corrected.
Great story about chickens saving the day! We have our own backyard flock and my 8 and 3 yr old loved this book! I am not going to lie I had to buy this for myself just so I could read it to them again!
