Details: Product Description A resourceful chicken seeks the help of her farm animal friends to solve a problem, while giving something of herself along the way. Chicken really admires Scarecrow’s hat. Scarecrow would gladly trade his hat for a walking stick to rest his tired arms. Chicken doesn’t have a walking stick to trade―but she knows someone who does. This begins her quest to find items to trade among her farm friends, all to obtain a walking stick to swap for Scarecrow’s hat. But why does Chicken want an old straw hat? With bright watercolors and a gentle tone to keep readers captivated, this clever story written and illustrated by Ken Brown poses a problem and offers a creative solution that young children will delight in discovering. Review “A gentle picture book with an old-fashioned feel…. Brown’s story proceeds at a leisurely pace, allowing young readers time to join in Chicken’s creative problem-solving…. The true standout here…is Brown’s artwork-his airy sun-dappled watercolors evoke a pleasant summer day.” “Problem solving takes center stage in this story of how a resourceful chicken, every bit as determined as the Little Red Hen, barters for a scarecrow’s hat…. Realistic watercolors greatly enhance this plucky, humorous tale.” “A brilliant watercolorist, Brown sets this familiarly patterned tale in sunny, poppy-strewn rural locales, and populates it with animals that are at once wonderfully lifelike and comically expressive…. Great for storytelling, with big beautiful pictures for a topper.” “Children will enjoy the repetition and refrain. Vibrant watercolors simultaneously depict the natural beauty of a blooming meadow in spring and the fine execution of expressions on the animals’ faces and in their body language…. satisfying, funny.” About the Author Ken Brown studied illustration at Birmingham Art College in England.
