Reviews

K-Gr 2-Emma, a spirited chicken, takes a trip to the Fall Fair with her family. Many events are introduced from her perspective, including entering a canning contest, making a jack-o'-lantern for a produce competition, and Emma herself in a poultry showdown. She would like to win her girl a ribbon but is not sure how. In one of the book's most humorous scenes, Emma witnesses a "pigeon-plop" and knows that "a chicken would not lower herself to be like those pigeons." Ultimately, of course, she is awarded a ribbon for being one of the best-looking chickens the judge has ever seen. Large, colorful cartoon illustrations depict the setting and make the most of Emma's comical expressions. An additional purchase where there is a demand for seasonal stories.-Maura Bresnahan, High Plain Elementary School, Andover, MA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

"This sweet picture book can be enjoyed on several levels. Not only is it a grand seasonal title but it also emphasizes the need for everyone to be who they are and to be true to themselves no matter what. With amusing cartoon style artwork to accompany the story, this picture book is sure to be enjoyed by all." -- Through the Looking Glass Children's Book Review
