Kindergarten-Grade 2 --There's trouble aplenty on Hank's farm, for he can't pay the mortgage and his vegetables won't grow. But never fear, for out of the blue come the cosmic chickens from the planet Koog, and through a few tricks and some slight swindling, they're able to ensure that justice prevails. Delaney's deadpan writing is clever, and the cartoon illustrations of barnyard animals and the ramshackled farm are well paired with the text. However, the plot is too convoluted for young children, with fortune-telling chickens appearing from and disappearing into outer space with no explanation, and it doesn't have enough substance for primary-grade children. These chickens are more likely to produce squawks of boredom than cackles of delight.
