Summary
A young farm girl tries to catch her favorite chicken, until she learns something about the hen that makes her change her ways. Meet one smart chicken chaser. She can catch any chicken on her grandmother's farm except one - the elusive Miss Hen. In a hilarious battle of wits, the spirited narrator regales readers with her campaign to catch Miss Hen, but this chicken is "fast as a mosquito buzzing and quick as a fleabite." Our chicken chaser has her mind set on winning, until she discovers that sometimes it's just as satisfying not to catch chickens as it is to catch them. A fresh voice full of sass and inventive, bold collage illustrations full of surprises create a childlike escapade brimming with funny high jinks that leads the reader on a merry, memorable chase
Summary
Meet the Chicken-Chasing Queen of Lamar County. Almost the first thing she thinks about every morning is chasing the farm's chickens. She sneaks up on them real slow, then . SQUAWK! But the Chicken- Chasing Queen is about to learn why the prettiest hen on the farm doesn't want to get caught
