Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Unaffected illustrations, captivating in their simplicity, tell of a--literally--foul exploratory outing. Ages 2-6. (July)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1 Minerva Louise, a chicken- brained white hen, explores the inside of the farm house with a certainty that would make Mr. Magoo proud. She de scribes the household items in terms of her barnyard worldthe cat is a ``friendly cow,'' the bedspread is ``a meadow of flowers''all the while overlooking the people inside. This, the winner of the Dutton Picture Book Competition, is a one-joke story, but one that should nevertheless amuse preschoolers. The simple text in large type is just right for beginning readers. Illustrations are simple outlined shapes in flat blocks of color, bordered with a wavy rule and placed above the text on each page. Minerva Louise, a bean-bag of a chicken, is an engaging fowl. Da vid Gale, ``School Library Journal''

My wife's grandmother use to read this to her all the time. I decided to get the hard back so that she would be able to read it to our future kids and remember all the good times with her grandmother. I recommend it for any young child.

*Simple, "silly," fun reading for youth. *Good for read-aloud-time or family read-together time.
