About this title


A most unusual chicken adopts a family.

When Caitlin’s dad rescues Queenie the hen from drowning, Queenie decides to return the favor in a most surprising way. Every morning she walks all the way from the farm to Caitlin’s house to lay an egg in Caitlin’s dog’s bed. But when Mom has a new baby, Caitlin forgets to collect the eggs, and the dog snuggles in on top of them. Suddenly there are even more additions to their happy group! Bob Graham’s warm and unusual tale of a family, a dog, and a hen who feel very much at home together will delight families of all kinds.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2. When a family out for a walk spies a bantam furiously paddling to keep her head above water, Dad jumps into the lake to rescue her. Queenie (as she is named) fits right in. In fact, she displaces Bruno the dog, taking over his cozy basket. Mom has an inkling that the fowl has a home of her own, so they all head over the bridge spanning a highway to the local farm. Home at last, the hen decides to repay her rescuers by making a daily visit to Bruno's basket to lay an egg. Pictures display young Caitlin's birthday cake and breakfasts made from Queenie's eggs?as well as mom's growing belly. In all the confusion of bringing home a new baby brother, the pre-schooler forgets to collect the eggs. Bruno reclaims his basket, settling in for a nice long nap, and in so doing, incubates them until they hatch. The chicks go to live on the farm with their mom?all but one. This lively story is seasoned with some humorous illustrations that deserve an extra look in order to catch all of the small details. The father sports an earring, ponytail, and five-o'clock shadow; the mother's hair is a lovely shade of punk rock pink. Dad sits on the couch knitting, while mom and Caitlin share a good book. Graham has created a lovable, quirky clan, and an equally likable hen.?Lisa Marie Gangemi, Sousa Elementary School, Port Washington, NY
