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. A former elementary-school science teacher, Henry Cole is the illustrator of more than ninety books for children, including bestsellers such as And Tango Makes Three and books by Julie Andrews Edwards and Harvey Fierstein. He has also written and illustrated his own picture books and novels. He lives in Florida.


"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."
"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."
"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."
