Synopsis

Elinor has always enjoyed being just a little bit naughty--until her new friend Violet shows her what naughty really is. The two young chickens burp loudly whenever they can, play dress-up in Elinor's sisters' best clothes, and eat all the cookies that Elinor's mother set aside for her book group. This bright and lively adventure will have readers laughing out loud as they identify with the secret thrill of being just a little bit naughty. Patti Beling Murphy used the most colorful fowl she could find as models--Rhode Island Red, Black Speckled, and Common White chickens among others.
