An enterprising chicken attempts to help an artist paint the barnyard and accidentally turns the whole picture blue.
This book is one beautiful image after another combined with deceptively spare text. Loaded with barnyard fun, it is a delight to read, exploring every page for the action and antics of the animals.
Deborah Freedman was shy as a child. Now she is the sometimes shy, sometimes brave author of several picture books for children, including <i>By Mouse and Frog</i>, <i>The Story of Fish and Snail</i>, <i>Blue Chicken</i>, and <i>Scribble</i>. She lives in a quiet house in Connecticut, where she happily read and draws and listens to birds sing. You can learn more about Deborah at deborahfreedman.net.
