They start to try to discover who did it and go through all the animals on the farm. Finally, they discover it was their young daughter. She did it because she felt trapped and needed to break free from home and begin an adventure out in the world. The family supports her and gives her their blessings. The young chicken goes happy outside.
This story is fun and engaging. The illustrations are very well done. Bright, colorful, fun, with good characters. I am sure kids will enjoy this book.
One day the perpetrator admits guilt. The chicken family is baffled but decide to support her. This surprise ending will be a challenge for young reader detectives. The author keeps readers in suspense. The beautifully illustrated book is a good choice for young children who like solving mysteries. Parents will like the message.
This book combines a picture book with more sophisticated text. Recommended for ages three through seven.
Basic plot of this one is that some chickens on a farm that has a range of animals on it, want to know which of them put a hole in their chicken coop. The culprit though, and their reason more so, was a bit disappointing.
Mama chick asks Papa chick, "Have you seen this?". "That is a gigantic hole. Who could have made it? ". Little Jim thinks Mrs Bunny. Papa chick went to see her. Mrs Bunny ran into the hutch. It wasn't her. Olivia came to feed the chickens and got frighten. She ran away. Maybe Mrs. Purr. What happened next? Do they find out who made it? Do you know? It's time to listen/read to go find out. It's hard to wait, huh?
Somebody made a hole in the chicken coop.
They investigating it and the result is surprising.
This is a great story, it is very engaging. I love the illustration.
I recommend this book for kids ages 3-7.

Most of the children really enjoyed listening to the story of the chicken coop. They thought it was exciting to see all of the animals on the farm and some of the older children liked to get involved and guess who they thought it would be.
Some of the younger children found it too long but they did enjoy seeing the fantastic illustrations of the animals. It was nice for them to see a variety of animals and what they get up to on the farm each day as this allowed the children to think about how they might have made a hole.
The characters in the story are fun to follow as we get to join them on the journey to discovering the truth, the truth which was a twist none of us saw coming! I thought this twist was a great way to end the story as (without spoiling too much!) it showed trust and inspiration for dreams and I think that's great for children and adults to see.
This is a lovely story which is very different to what I expected but one the children really enjoyed. A fantastic mystery for young children with a beautiful ending.
me read it to her multiple times. She carries it with her wherever she goes. Lovely book.
I liked that multiple animals are a part of the story so my daughter got inquisitive about each of them & learnt a lot.
I would recommend the book to my friends having small kids 😊
