Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Why wait for Easter to have an egg hunt? In her debut children's book, cookbook author Golson leads readers on a tour of her Massachusetts home, where one of the chickens is looking for the perfect place to lay eggs. While the other six hens are content to use the henhouse, Tillie tries different spots on for size over the course of a week-from the farmhouse porch ("Yuck, this worm is very dry," muses Tillie, shown pecking at a bootlace) and the breakfast table to the laundry room. "Where has Tillie laid her egg?" prompts the text on several pages; children will have little trouble accomplishing the implied task. In an added visual treat, the photographed scenes are packed with Golson's own chicken-motif treasures-glassware, tins, vintage board games-and invite close exploration. Text and photos appear in bordered boxes; these are set against pastel wallpapers with country patterns-a pleasant contrast to Fink's crisp photography. At least one hen peeks in on the action on each spread, and the closeup shots of their wide-eyed faces add an unexpectedly funny note. Full of charm. Ages 4-8. (Jan.)

Gr 1-3

Sharply focused full-color photographs are the media of choice for this combination I-spy/storybook. On Little Pond Farm, seven hens must share three nesting boxes. White-feathered Tillie, however, not being one to follow the crowd, prefers using a variety of places to lay her eggs-the garden, the front porch, the kitchen, and even the laundry basket-all of which offer culinary treats superior to the barnyard corn. Individual tableaux are well set, and the sprightly chickens (all with names and individual portraits) peek into the margins, adding interest. Brief text describes Tillie's meanderings followed by the quote "Where has Tillie laid her egg?" involving youngsters in the search. At story's end, the open door of a bright red pickup truck reveals that she has found another unusual spot to lay an egg. Fink's photos serve the text well, inviting visual explorations as his camera follows Tillie around the farmyard, into the house, and back to the nesting box.-Barbara Elleman, Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, Amherst, MA

Kirkus Reviews
Golson's picture-book debut is a merry introduction to a rural slice of life-the social lives of the chickens on Little Pond Farm. The seven inhabitants of the henhouse take turns laying their daily eggs in the three nesting boxes. All except for Tillie, however, who cannot wait around for a turn when there are so many interesting things to see and juicy worms to eat. Her eggs wind up in the unlikeliest of places, giving readers a chance to tour the farm and search for them. All the while, children are treated to a running commentary of the chickens' thoughts. Fink's cleverly designed photographs have an old-time nostalgic feel to them, thanks to the author's flea-market finds. Tongue-in-cheek chicken-and-egg props fill the backgrounds and are sure to amuse observant older readers. But topping it all is the chance to view the real deal via HenCam in Golson's chicken run. A great way to show children where eggs come from and that animals also have a "human" side. (Picture book. 4-8)

    This book is great!

    We bought this book for my 2 year old son for Easter. We also have 8 chickens so this book was great for him. He really likes to show me where Tillie laid her egg on the different pages. He can even tell me which chicken is which. A really good book for little people.
