Meet one smart chicken chaser. She can catch any chicken on her grandmotherÕs farm except one Ð 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 Òfast as a mosquito buzzing and quick as a fleabite.Ó Our chicken chaser has her mind set on winning, until she discovers that sometimes itÕs 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.
