The Silly Chicken is a delightful and humorous tale about a chicken who learns to speak as we do – with surprising and unexpected consequences. The events that follow intrigue young children and, and at the same time, alert them in a very amusing way to the dangers of being too quick to believe everything you hear. Illustrator Jeff Jackson creates a lively and amusing world, rich in color and expression, in which anything can happen. This tale is one of the many hundreds of Sufi developmental stories collected by Idries Shah from oral and written sources in Central Asia and the Middle East. For more than a thousand years this story has entertained young people and helped to foster in them the ability to examine their assumptions and to think for themselves. Éste es un encantador cuento de un pollo que aprende a hablar como nosotros. Esta historia va a intrigar a los niños pequeños y, al mismo tiempo, va a alertarlos, de forma graciosa, sobre los peligros de ser demasiado crédulos. Este es el primer libro para niños del ilustrador/animador Jeff Jackson. Expresa su inusual habilidad para crear un mundo vívido y entretenido, rico en color, en el que cualquier cosa puede ocurrir.

About the Author:

Idries Shah spent much of his life collecting Sufi classical narratives and teaching stories from oral and written sources in the Middle East and Central Asia and publishing them in book form. The eleven tales he wrote especially for children are published by Hoopoe as beautifully illustrated books, all of which have been commended by Western educators and psychologists, the Library of Congress, National Public Radio and other media for their unique ability to foster social-emotional development, thinking skills and perception in children and adults alike. Told for centuries, these stories express universal themes and a positive representation of important but often misunderstood cultures, showing how much we have in common and what we can learn from each other. They acknowledge a child’s individuality and uniqueness and encourage a sense of confidence, responsibility and purpose.

Review:

"...this quirky, good-natured fable, with bright, aptly comical pictures, ably illustrates the maxim, it's important not to believe everything you hear." -Booklist "Set in the Middle East, Shah's retelling of a Sufi story sends a gentle message to readers: just because someone says it's so, does not make it so...With its simple language and repeating phrases, the story begs to be told, and Jackson's colorful pastel illustrations lend a zany accent to the antics. It's a classic case of 'the sky is falling' from an ancient culture, and it still has the ring of truth today" -School Library Journal
