Overview

Chicken to the rescue!

Chicken, Pig and Cow are very happy together in their barn, so not everyone is pleased when Horse arrives. Horse is clever and strong, but, as Chicken points out, he also takes up a lot of space.

When Chicken suggests they play a game of hide-and-seek, Horse merrily trots off. But when he disappears, a frantic search ensues. Horse is nowhere to be found -- until Chicken finally spots him inside the fishbowl. Feeling guilty, Chicken jumps in to save him, only to realize that Horse is actually outside the bowl. So who will save Chicken? All ends well when Pig, Cow and Horse -- with the help of Dog -- team up to rescue their friend.

The adorable toy characters Chicken, Pig and Cow (and real-life Dog) continue to delight young children with their charming adventures and subtle messages about friendship, acceptance and working together.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Too subtle to be used as a new sibling book, this title works best as a friendship story.
— Ieva Bates, Ann Arbor District Library
School Library Journal
PreS-K—Chicken, Pig, and Cow, three toys, return. There is a new baby in the household and, in the spirit of getting a new sibling, their child owner introduces Horse as a new friend. Chicken is not happy. She suggests a game of hide-and-seek and Horse willingly gallops off to hide. Chicken won't look for him until Pig and Cow shame her into it. When Horse is not to be found, even Chicken starts to worry. She thinks she sees Horse in the fishbowl and jumps in to save him, but Horse is actually on the outside. Pig and Cow jump in after Chicken, and Horse soon follows. Chicken apologizes to Horse and everyone reconciles. Now they have to figure a way out of the fishbowl. Cow climbs on Horse, Pig climbs on Cow, and Chicken goes to the top and jumps out. They all get out except Horse. The toys enlist the family dog and pull Horse out with a ribbon. As the human family with the new baby sit in the background, the three original toys acknowledge that new friends are a nice thing. The watercolor illustrations are drawn on lots of white space, making the expressive yellow chicken, pink pig, and spotted cow stand out against the pages. Too subtle to be used as a new-sibling book, this title works best as a friendship story.—Ieva Bates, Ann Arbor District Library, MI
CM Magazine
A perfect read for preschoolers who can learn from Chicken and Horse how to be better friends. Highly Recommended.
Open Book Toronto
When Horse arrives to the barn, he cramps the style of the residents -- or so Chicken says. Chicken, Pig, Cow, Horse Around by Ruth Ohi will delight preschoolers and help teach them the value of friendship.
Resource Links
Ohi captures the complexity of emotions inherent in relationships...She does this with such sensitivity that her stories never feel moralistic or pedantic. Highly recommended.
