Editorial Reviews


"Emma is a hen with personality, persistence, and (pardon the pun) pluck. The story of her ingenious ways of foiling the coyote is engaging, funny, and will have preschoolers clamoring to "read it again!" --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Hardcover
An absolutely delightful tale of barnyard intrigue. Emma is noordinary chicken! She is determined to overcome her fears and outsmartthe evil coyote who lurks around the hen house. In spite of comments like "a chicken can't outsmart a coyote!", she believes in herself and teaches children to do the same. This book gives a wonderful positive message to our children and will help them develop good self-esteem. The illustrations are colorful and entertaining. My children loved it! My daughter's entire kindergarten class wanted it to be read over and over again! This one's a keeper!
