The Chick That Wouldn't Hatch
Claire Daniel, Lisa Campbell Ernst
(HMH Books for Young Readers, July 1, 2003)
There are six eggs in Mother Hen’s nest, but--Chip! Chip! Chip! Chip! Chip!--only five eggs hatch! The sixth egg goes on a high-rolling adventure across the barnyard, past the pig and the tomato patch, and, finally, into Mother Hen’s waiting wings. What a wild ride! Lisa Campbell Ernst’s bold, energetic illustrations transform a short trip across the barnyard into a rollicking good time.
