On a teeny little farm, in an itty-bitty coop, a very small hen laid a big, giant egg. And out of this egg came one big, humongous . . . something. "It's big!" clucked the little rooster. "It's enormous!" clucked the small chicken. "It's anelephant!" peeped the smallest chicken. "Run for your lives!" they cried. No matter how they try, these clueless chickens can't make sense of the gigantic new member of their familyuntil he saves the day. With wacky, laugh-out-loud humor and silliness to spare, this BIG twist on the classic Chicken Little story lends a whole new perspective to what it means to be chicken.

You know the story: Chicken Little and her rhyming cast of friends run pell-mell through the woods, convinced that the sky is falling.

Chicago Tribune

This hilarious recasting of "Chicken Little" works by setting up a visual and verbal counterpoint between a chorus of the local poultry - including the "smallest chicken," "not the sharpest beak in the flock" - and the observations of "a big humongous chick."
