Overview

Meet Marge and Lola, chickens on a mission: to win tickets for the Elvis Poultry Show! But their toughest competition is a pack of menacing ducks. Can our two feisty chicks show those quackers how to rock the barnyard? Tammi Sauer and Dan Santat have whipped up a giddy, goofy romp where cows fly over the moon, ducks surf in a water trough, and one very familiar-looking rooster gets all shook up!

This book is a blast! All of my kids had fun reading it, as did I. It's fun, it's witty, and it's highly entertaining. The illustrations are so well-done & amusing. It's a new favorite here at our house. I just wish it was a read-to-me book. With the right voices, it would seriously be too much fun!

Chicken Dance by Tammi Sauer is a cute, silly tale about a barnyard talent competition, the prize for which is a couple of tickets to the sold-out Elvis Poulty Concert. But the real stars of the show are the illustrations by Dan Santat. His nostalgic, almost primitive forms come to life with a rich, lush color palette and deep, earthtoned shadowing. Santat paints a gorgeous nightscape where the humble farm animals engage in a surprisingly bloodthirsty competition for the prized tickets. Elvis lives! And he is a heart-throb for feminine foul everywhere. Adults will appreciate certain grown-up references and their children will love the goofy animal antics.

Elvis fans of all ages will "bawk and roll" over this zany adventure of two chickens, who set out to win the barnyard dance for a chance to meet Elvis Poultry! Written by Tammi Sauer and illustrated by Dan Santat, this picture book will delight children even if they do not know who Elvis Presley is and will likely have them shaking their tails by the time the book is finished.
