Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-This fast-paced rhyming story chronicles the escapades of a hen as she scrambles around the kitchen searching frantically for a spot to hatch her eggs. A compassionate dog dissembles a broom, giving her some straw for her nest. To the pup's delight, his thoroughly messed-up kitchen quickly fills with a throng of newly hatched chicks. Written in a swinging slang style, the story incorporates some unfamiliar vocabulary that, presented in its rhyming format, children will find interesting. "`She's a quick 'un. She's a slick 'un.'" Cartoon illustrations, rendered in pencil and watercolor, are filled with lots of action and detail that will bring smiles to little faces. Pages are large, and the pictures fill the space right up to the edges. For children to appreciate the unusual dialect, this book is best read aloud.-Corrina Austin, Locke's Public School, St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Yes, "There's a chicken in the kitchen, / and she's pokin' like the dickens / at the oven and the bread box. / Just a peckin' and a pickin'." An apron-clad dog tries to figure out what the harried hen wants, offering her assorted tidbits, even his dog bones, but to no avail. As he sweeps up the mess in the kitchen made by her frantic flapping, his broom sparks an idea and he chops up the broom handle-to make the poor old biddy a nest. And now the content chicken is busy laying and hatching eggs. The flighty pencil-and-watercolor illustrations match the frenzy, filling the kitchen with details that humorously depict the mania, but the pacing is cracked, the story line is eggshell thin, and the rhyming text henpecked at times. Peck, pick, and poke, this feather-brained tale needs a stronger perch to roost on. (Picture book. 4-7)
