He lives with his wife, Ruth Brown, also a well-known children's illustrator, in England.


"A gentle picture book with an old-fashioned feel.... Brown's story proceeds at a leisurely pace, allowing young readers time to join in Chicken's creative problem-solving.... The true standout Brown's artwork-his airy sun-dappled watercolors evoke a pleasant summer day."
"Problem solving takes center stage in this story of how a resourceful chicken, every bit as determined as the Little Red Hen, barters for a scarecrow's hat.... Realistic watercolors greatly enhance this plucky, humorous tale."
"A brilliant watercolorist, Brown sets this familiarly patterned tale in sunny, poppy-strewn rural locales, and populates it with animals that are at once wonderfully lifelike and comically expressive.... Great for storytelling, with big beautiful pictures for a topper."
"Children will enjoy the repetition and refrain. Vibrant watercolors simultaneously depict the natural beauty of a blooming meadow in spring and the fine execution of expressions on the animals' faces and in their body language.... satisfying, funny."
