A happy-go-plucky rhyme adventure of chickens frolicking in an urban environment as they run rampant all around town

"Urban backyard chickens go on a madcap tour of the city in this rhyming romp. . . the narrative bounces off the tongue. The marker-bright illustrations are frenetic and filled with humorous details."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Hysterical rhyming book about chickens escaping from their yard. Funny shenanigans ensue with each towns-person and animal they encounter. This will appeal to lots of kids around here whose families own chickens "
--Buttonwood Books & Toys, bookseller recommendation

"Reading this out loud was so much fun The rhyming and rhythm added a musical element to reading the book. And within the rhymes there are great vocabulary moments, too . . . The backmatter of the book gives information about keeping urban chickens and some fun chicken facts. It is a great way to connect the story to science."
--Unleashing Readers
