9780399252686: The Chicken of the Family (Dolly Parton's Imagination Library)

From Booklist Henrietta's older sisters love to tease, but they reach new heights when they inform Henrietta that she's a chicken: "Mom got you from Barney's farm." Arguments about having no feathers don't hold sway. But soon Henrietta thinks she may, indeed, be a chicken- especially after she finds an egg in her bed. So she heads over to Barney's farm to commune with her sister chicks, flapping her arms, and rolling in dirt. When her sisters come to take her home, Henrietta informs them that she is a chicken. Now, its up to the siblings to work as hard to convince Henrietta of her humanity as they did of her fowlness. The knowing premise, so true to the shenanigans of real siblings, runs its amusing course until the conclusion, when the effort peters out. But kids will still get plenty of laughs from both the story and the bright pictures on clean, white backgrounds. Henrietta, as homely as she is humorous, shows readers how to turn teasing upside down. Preschool-Grade 1. --Ilene Cooper Product Description Henrietta's two older sisters love to tease her. When they try to convince her that she's actually a chicken instead of a little girl, it's pretty hard to believe at first. But the evidence is all there: her legs are kind of yellow, and her toes are kind of long. The feathers she finds beside her bed the next morning settle it, and Henrietta heads off to the farm to find her real family. The chickens welcome her with open wings, and this lovably gullible heroine's joyful acceptance of who she really is will have readers squawking with laughter.
