Chicken Lily may be a lot of things--a careful colorer, a patient puzzler, and a quiet hide-and-seeker (she never made a peep!)--but brave has never been one of them. That's why, when a school-wide poetry jam is announced in class, Lily is terrified. Will she sound like a bird brain?
Although Lily's friends Baabette and Pigsley try to encourage her, Lily feels like a rotten egg. Finally, Lily realizes that she must put her best claw forward and prove that even chickens aren't chicken all the time.
Praise for Chicken Lily
"The watercolor, pen, and ink illustrations are large and, well, cute. Lily's classmates are all friendly and happy, and Lily's face is expressive. VERDICT A good choice for schools and public libraries." - School Library Journal
