Feathers fly and humor abounds as the literary adventures continue for Henrietta, the talented chicken from The Plot Chickens.
Thrilled to have her picture book published, Henrietta is all aflutter with excitement when she's invited to a local book festival. However, the event organizers did not count on having a chicken show up to sign books. Luckily, just when the festival director gives chase, Henrietta comes up with a clever plan to make herself heard and be respected. As Henrietta's loyal local children's librarian explains, "A chicken who can write books is a national treasure."
THE REVIEWS ARE IN
"The latest pun-filled poultry parody from the Auchs . . . explores the travails and triumphs of a hen who strives to be a published writer. . . . The numerous references to the writing and publishing process for authors coupled with the double-entendre wordplay and vivid digitally crafted illustrations are an imaginative way to enlighten children while simultaneously giving adults an appropriate chuckle. This one should fly off the shelf frequently and will be eminently useful in author-visit-prep."—Kirkus Reviews
"Young aspiring writers will find nothing but encouragement to pursue a craft."—Booklist
