"Laminack's storytelling is brisk, and Cole's cartoon illustrations are vivid and comical"--Booklist

"What might have been an ordinary be-yourself story is enhanced by Laminack's (Snow Day!) surprisingly thoughtful storytelling. . . Laminack characterizes the hens with a fine ear for their Golden Girls outrage. . . the illustrations go for big guffaws and slapstick instead, and largely succeed. . . effectively keeping the book from feeling message-heavy."--Publishers Weekly

"Frenetically posing chickens will inspire giggles. . . Good farm fun."--Kirkus Reviews--Kirkus Reviews

"A delightful choice for schools and public libraries"--School Library Journal
