This fresh and lively picture book follows Chick, an artist whose colorful, patterned eggs become too flashy for the egg factory she works in. Forced to leave her job, the homeless and penniless Chick is forced to sell her artistic eggs on the street; just as she is about to lose all hope, a kindred soul takes Chick under her wing. Chick’s new patron encourages her artistic vision, nurturing her talents and helping her to sell her eggs. Imparting the important childhood message to be true to oneself and to think creatively and independently, this book shows Chick following her dreams and reaching her full potential as an artist, a mother, and a chicken.

PreS-Gr 1-Chick works in an egg factory where all the eggs must be the same-white and oval-so they can fit into egg boxes. When she gets bored with her job and starts to make beautifully colored eggs instead, her bosses fire her. Befriended by a well-dressed lady (a goose) who invites Chick to her home, the hen gets to practice her art and make her fantastic eggs in peace. When she has enough of them, her patron arranges an exhibition and Chick becomes famous, but she keeps her newest and best creations-baby chicks-for herself. The bright, bold, stylized illustrations fill the large pages with color. Although the story is slight, the underlying idea that art and artists need to be appreciated is important. The book could also be used in Easter or egg storytimes.-Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LAα(c) Copyright 2013.
