Chicken Lily is a lot of things--a careful colorer, a patient puzzler, and a quiet hide-and-seeker (she never makes a peep!)--but "brave" is not one of them. When her teacher, Mrs. Lop, plans a grand slam poetry jam, Lily is terrified. She doesn't want to stand in front of everyone and sound like a birdbrain! So Chicken Lily hatches a plan. Will she find the courage to put her best claw forward? Or will she fly the coop?
Nice addition to storytimes
and good . . . for anyone who’s a little chicken.Kirkus Reviews.

chicken-themed puns to amuse kids, while offering an unstated encouraging

but this picture book thrusts one into the spotlight and lets her shine."
"Lily is literally and figuratively a chicken. . . Filled with
seamlessly incorporated poultry puns and idioms . . .the wordplay makes this
title . . . a good choice for schools and public libraries."
