A version of Chicken Little that ends (view spoiler)


I love that Emberley cut maybe 90% of the name repetition out of the story. Anyone who's read another version with the 1000 crazy name repetitions will like that. The kids got drawn into the book and were silent and perhaps a bit nervous when we came to the fox and the cave. Isn't it great when that happens?

The few snarky comments make this better suited to around 2nd grade, but younger readers will dig this, too.

Great story time illustrations -- large pictures w/ lots of color.

Between 3 & 4 stars
