Publisher Summary

Mrs. Chicken has to think fast to outwit hungry Crocodile, who wants to eat her for dinner.”One morning Mrs. Chicken took her bath in a puddle.”””Cluck, cluck,” she said proudly. “What a pretty chicken I am!””Mrs. Chicken can’t see her wings in the puddle, so she walks down to the river where she can admire all of herself. She doesn’t know that Crocodile is there, waiting for dinner and a tasty chicken would do nicely! To save herself, Mrs. Chicken tells Crocodile that they are sisters. But how can a speckled chicken and a green-skinned crocodile be related? Mrs. Chicken had better prove that they are, and fast, because Crocodile is getting hungrier . . .The authors and illustrator of” Head, Body, Legs” join together to create another lively retelling of a popular African folktale.”Mrs. Chicken and the Hungry Crocodile” is a 2004 Bank Street - Best Children’s Book of the Year.”
