About this title


The rivalry between Zinnia and Dot--two plump, self-satisfied hens who bicker constantly over the superior quality of their eggs--rages until a weasel steals all but one of their eggs and the two must join forces to protect the survivor.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-- With flawless phrasing and lively art, Ernst returns to her theme of competition's drive (nearly) overcoming good judgment. Two hens have such pride in their eggs that it overshadows all sense of perspective and results in the theft, by a wily and opportunistic weasel, of all but one of the eggs. The remaining one then becomes the source of even more rancor until a pair of mourning doves persuades the feuding females to share the responsibility of sitting on it. They do, but with comic results that lead, after all, to a happy ending. As in Sam Johnson and the Blue Ribbon Quilt (Lothrop, 1983) and Miss Penny and Mr. Grubbs (Bradbury, 1991), Ernst makes her point, but ever so gently. The pastel-and-ink drawings, filled with shades of browns and blues suggestive of a henhouse, depict plump, proud hens whose facial expressions and ``feather language'' tell the tale as effectively as the words. A winning tale of a friendship that triumphs over vanity. --Jane Marino, White Plains Public Library, NY
