  • Darling story, beautiful illustrations. I keep chickens and love to watch them, and am often disappointed in how they are drawn. These illustrations are perfect, showing the expressions on Daisy's sweet little chicken face, with great detail to each chicken's plumage. The non-chicken illustrations are equally detailed and carefully rendered. Sweet story, great for little kids, and for adults who collect books about chickens.

  • When it comes to beautifully illustrated children's books with a cultural twist, Jan Brett is the first author/illustrator that comes to mind. I have many of Brett's books that all three of my children have cherished over the last several years. I live overseas in Norway and many of Brett's books have a very Scandanavian feel to them. This one, however, is set in China. I have an adopted Chinese daughter and she was thrilled to look at the very detailed illustrations on each and every page of this darling story. The story is one of learning to stand up for yourself in order to be considered an equal amongst your peers. My daughter has me read this story to her almost every night. This is one of those books (along with all my other Jan Brett books) that I will be saving to share with my grandkids someday!

  • Our family loves Jan Brett books, and we bought this as part of a baby gift for our good friend who keeps chickens. I'm a speech language pathologist, and I especially love Jan Brett's writing, and how she smoothly introduces context-based vocabulary throughout all of her stories. All of her books, and especially this one, offer opportunities for discussion about other cultures.

  • Good book

  • One of Jan Brett's quality books of which she has many. Good value for the price.

  • Don't miss this one! We love this story, beautiful China setting. Told with the little girl's love for her chicken...the little girl outsmarts the greedy guy, using his own words to tell him a thing or two, and the bully-chickens get their come-uppance. All is so right with the world, now I can sleep. I was so surprised to stumble on to this great tale. With similarities to the Story of Ping, this offered so much more (and minus the old-fashioned spank, for those that have read Ping). Had only read one other Brett story, and this one has piqued our interest in other Brett tales, and her website too.

    I do think all kids will love this, but particularly special to us as our two girls are adopted from China.
