It's Rocky to the rescue when Ginger is captured by Mr. Tweedy and thrown in the monstrous chicken-pie-making machine. But can Rocky and Ginger "eggscape" before their pie is cooked? Die-cut holes in the pages of the book allow children to place finger puppets of Ginger and Rocky in each memorable scene. An attractive display box on the front cover shows off the puppets and doubles as storage. This is a perfect package for preschoolers.

When Rocky the Flying Rooster drops out of the sky and into the Tweedy's chicken farm, it's love at first sight between the handsome rooster and Ginger, a clever hen bent on escape. But life is not all hearts and flowers for these two. For one thing, Ginger's owners--the sinister Farmer and Mrs. Tweedy--are plotting to turn all the chickens into pot pies with lots of gravy.
Based on the new Claymation feature film Chicken Run (from the creators of the popular Wallace and Gromit series), Rocky to the Rescue is an inventive combination of board book and puppet stage. As they read, kids can use the charming rubber Rocky and Ginger finger puppets to act out key scenes through the round, die-cut windows on each page. Will Rocky and Ginger escape to freedom? Will they end up wrapped in pastry and gravy? Or will the finger puppets run off to become characters in other stories? Only your imaginative young puppeteer will know for sure. (Ages 4 to 7) --Marianne Painter
