Rumor has it that Mrs. Farmer is making chicken soup, so the chickens are on the run—except for poor Little Chickie, who has a bad cold. No matter where she hides—the hayloft, a milk pail, or the sheep pen—her sneezes give her away. She is sure to be found soon!
The unbeatable mother-son team of award-winning and bestselling author Jean Van Leeuwen, whose Oliver and Amanda Pig books are a children’s literature staple, and her son, up-and-coming illustrator David Gavril (Penelope Nuthatch and the Big Surprise), have created a charming picture book very much in the spirit of Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type.

All the animals think the farmer wants to make chicken soup. So all the animals warn each other so they don't get caught and eaten. When they tell little chickie, he is to sick to run and hide. Finally the farmer catches him and brings him inside where he finds him vegtable soup. Little Chickie realizes that the farmer was only trying to help him feel better.
