Praise for Chicken Little: The Real and Totally True Tale: "In this clever spin on the classic tale, Chicken Little makes it clear-right from the get-go-that she's got plenty of pluck... Wedelich's hand-lettered text is chockful of humor... Equally chuckle-worthy, Wedelich's loose-lined digital illustrations feature a protagonist who sports cowboy boots and oversized spectacles, both tinted fire-engine red. In this fractured fable, empathy ends up saving the day, and the moral (don't believe everything you hear; check the facts) is broadcast loud and clear." -- The Horn Book"Whimsy reigns in Wedelich's debut picture book, a reimagining of the classic doomsday story. Punchy speech balloons and spare, loosely lined digital cartoons imbue the title character with abundant personality and humorous mood swings...Sprawling across vertical matte pages dominated by teal and ochre hues, Wedelich's hand-lettered text mimics her story's high energy, while the hens' wry asides ("We're free-range!") amplify the comedy. A spry readaloud that will entertain adults and listeners in equal measure." -- Publishers Weekly"Sam's whimsical line brings to life a contemporary take on a classic character. This unexpected story has a great message and many laughs." -- Kirkus Review"The whole episode takes on a kinder, gentler slant... [and] this chicken, stylish in her red cowboy boots and huge eyeglasses, is worthy of admiration for her ability to "pullet" together in the wake of a sudden mishap." -- Booklist
