This is a silly, fun read-aloud. It has quite a bit of quality high-level vocabulary that was worth discussing.

Age Appropriateness: Primary
Genre: Fantasy
Media: Mixed Media
Characterization: The chicken in th story is a round and dynamic character. She tells the reader all about her life as a chicken and how she is sick and tired of sitting and laying eggs all day, wondering if she is going to be eaten. She changes and develops as she decides to leave the farm and go out on an adventure to find safety. After leaving the farm she realizes that is where she wants to be afterall.
Review: This is a good example of fantasy because it makes the story of a talking chicken with logical thought seem possible. After escaping the frying pan, the chicken has an adventure that includes pirates, a typhoon, and a balloon ride before landing in a petting zoo. ( )
