That was a terrible story. Characters are same at the end as the beginning, after just a laundry list of crimes against people (firing sling shots at people) and property (destruction of clothes and flowers). The Chicks take a bus to the beach without mom knowing and NO CONSEQUENCES? Ugh.

Looking for naughty themed books, I liked Heckedy Peg or Rotten Teeth much better.

Mommy's review from 4/15/10 -

This is a pretty cool little book - the illustrations are adorable and the story is one that may just get through to a little kid. I was very surprised at how much Julia seemed to be pondering the situation(s) Elinor found herself in with Violet. Usually, even with a book with a meaningful message, Julia will listen to the story and for the most part the message seems to be lost. But with this it was different and she was engaged.
We'll be reading this again, if onl

The only thing more titillating than a relatively good chicken sneakily undertaking pathetically mild misbehavior is an obnoxiously bad chicken brashly executing blatlantly bigtime misbehavior. This terrific book boasts both!

This is a really fun book! It could be used to talk about manners and rules

The pictures are perfect with the text and it may do just the thing to get to children's minds that being naughty is not as great as it seems to be.

I loved it and the ending teaches a good lesson but it might stress adults out.

I liked it. I learned that it isn't as good as you think to be bad.
