About the Author
Jackie Mims Hopkins was born in Texas, where she still lives. She holds degrees from the University of Arkansas and Texas A & M University. She is a storyteller, a former teacher, a retired school librarian, and the author of several children's books.

Henry Cole has published almost 150 books for children, including those he has both written and illustrated, including Homer on the Case and The Somewhat True Adventures of Sammy Shine, and those he has illustrated, including bestsellers such as And Tango Makes Three and books by Julie Andrews Edwards and Harvey Fierstein. A former fourth grade science teacher who grew up on a farm, he is a popular presenter who dazzles audiences of all ages.
"The repetition invites chiming in from young readers, who will also find plenty to chuckle at in Cole's (Unspoken) bustling watercolor, ink, and colored-pencil illustrations, which convey the animals' overblown fright with comedic bravado. . . a lively take on this familiar tale."--Publishers Weekly

"The simple text with its rhyming words and repeated phrases will appeal to emerging readers. Pair Steven Kellogg's Chicken Little (Morrow, 1987), featuring a city setting, with this prairie version of the folktale for an entertaining story hour."--School Library Journal

"Hopkins' prairie take on 'Chicken Little' is made storytime perfect by Cole's characteristically hysterical, watercolor-and-colored-pencil cartoons of goggle-eyed critters. It's also a nice twist that Mary and her friends save themselves from the coyote rather than ending up as lunch or requiring outside assistance. . . good fun to share in a lap or with a group."--Kirkus Reviews
