9780670786169: Brave Chicken Little

Whack!

What’s that? 

Could it be? A piece of the sky! 

Oh my!

Chicken Little and his friends run, run, run to tell the king. Nothing stands in the way except...the sly Foxy Loxy. Surely they have time to stop for lunch with Foxy and his kits. But what happens when Chicken Little and company find themselves on the menu?


What this classic story needs is a new ending and a brave hero.  And maybe this time, it’s Chicken Little!

Cleverly retold and exquisitely illustrated by Robert Byrd, Brave Chicken Little transforms a cautionary fable into a tale of triumph.

About the Author:

Robert Byrd is quite certain that all stories need a good ending, and he’s been thinking of a new ending for the classic Chicken Little since he was a boy. For over thirty years, Robert has created whimsical books for children of all ages. He teaches Children's Book Illustration at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. He lives in Haddonfield, New Jersey, with his wife, Ginger, and their cat, Mickey Mantle.

Review:

PRAISE FOR BRAVE CHICKEN LITTLE:

"Byrd’s rewrite of the Chicken Little story is a distinct improvement on traditional versions...pen-and-ink spreads drawn with a sense of lyricism [are] pleasantly at odds with the slapstick prose." – Publishers Weeklystarred review

"So much attention and detail has been lavished on each flora and fauna enhanced spread that children will want repeat viewings. That will give them more time to catch the humor that can be broad (CL cellar escape) or subtle (the range of expressions on the animals’ faces)." – Booklist, starred review

"This is the most fun version of Chicken Little since Paul Galdone's Henny Penny (Seabury Press, 1968)." —Library Media Connection

“A handsome, most welcome addition to the...literature of folk and fairy tales.”  —Kirkus


“Byrd upends both the classic tale’s conventions and its cautionary message; still, his revision works as an underdog-makes-good story, much abetted by his elegantly detailed illustrations.” —Horn Book

"Alliteration, occasional rhyming, and poetic language add richness to the storytelling and strengthen the readaloud potential." —BCCB

PRAISE FOR ELECTRIC BEN, ALSO BY ROBERT BYRD:


"A beautifully realized labor of love and affection brings to life one of our brightest founding fathers." – Kirkus, starred review

"...this book shimmers with excitement, begging to be read." – The Horn Book, starred review

"It's a fascinating and comprehensive portrait, and an asset for student research." – Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Large in format and ambitious in scope, this appealingly designed book spotlights Benjamin Franklin and

his times." – Booklist, starred review

"Author/illustrator Robert Byrd presents highlights of the long and varied life of one of America’s most famous citizens in this picture book biography." – Library Media Connection, starred review

“a true standout...bright, witty, informative and cleverly organized as the man himself.” – The New York Times
