Chicken in the Kitchen is a cute story of a chicken that is frantically searching for a place to lay her eggs. She chooses the sweet and helpful dog’s kitchen as the place to be. The dog runs around behind her trying to help her find the place she wants to be all the while making a mess of the kitchen and turning things upside down. Finally the chicken is comfortable and lays her eggs everywhere and now there are many chickens in the kitchen.
This rhyming story would lend itself well to a book

Told in rhyme and accompanied by deliciously cute illustrations, this book takes us on Dog's journey to make his chicken happy. Dog's chicken runs willy nilly about the kitchen until Dog finally figures out what his chicken wants. Once he figures it out, Chicken is not only happy, but Dog's ends up with an unexpected surprise. Pretty sure both your boys and girlies from ages four to eight will enjoy this happy book.

Cute story but a lot of southern phrases that might be hard to understand for someone who doesn't know the colloquial lingo such as "like the dickens!" But still fun :)

It is a funny book to read for young kids. I was surprise by the dog's patience with the chicken. It teaches kids how to be a good friend. The illustrations are colorful and very interesting. I like the size of book, it is effected for young kids who are learning how to read.

As an adult i thought this book was kind of funny, if a real chicken got into my kitchen, it would be a lot crazier than it was in this book. The illustrations i thought were great, helped you see and picture how crazy the kitchen was. I thought it was a fun book to read.

Bad slant rhymes!! ugh. Pictures are cute and detail all the chicken chaos that ensues, but seem too cozy and soft for the formal, old fashioned tone of the rhyme. Odd combination.
