Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0805052550, Hardcover)A newborn chick can't help but break into song. After all, the springtime world is just so beautiful. "The sky is so blue!" he sings. "The sun is yellow! The trees are so green! And I'm a happy fellow." The singing chick barely peeps the last peep of his perky little song when he encounters a lip-smacking fox who swallows the fluffy bird in one gulp. Suddenly, the fox's tummy feels funny and, much to his dismay, a song bursts forth from his throat, "The sky is so blue! The sun is so yellow!..." Why did I say that? he wonders. And on it goes with the fox meeting (and being eaten by) a hungry wolf, who in turn is eaten by a grumpy bear. Each animal finds itself with a song not in its heart but in its belly. Children love this breed of food-chain folly, especially when all the animals tumble out alive and whole. Narrators, too, will adore mimicking the chick's squeaky little song that erupts from each increasingly gruff beast. Illustrator Randy Cecil (Dear Dr. Sillybear and Little Red Cowboy Hat) provides just the right colorful, expressive, and funny-faced artwork to accompany Victoria Stenmark's clever and silly springtime story.

A newly hatched, happily singing chick is eaten by a fox, who then starts singing before being eaten by a wolf, and so begins a chain of eating and singing for a series of animals.
