If you were the Chicken-Chasing Queen of Lamar County, would you keep trying to catch Miss Hen, that one big beautiful chicken that is faster than a mosquito and quicker than a flea-bite? If Big Mama told you to stop chasing the chickens, would you stop? What could Miss Hen have up her wing feathers that would change your goal forever?

You will love this story of an young African American farm girl and her favorite chicken! It is a fast-paced read-aloud that invites sound effects from listeners and is filled with brilliant, unusual illustrations, colloquial language, and unique figures of speech. The sweet, tender ending tops it all!
