Publisher Summary

A wordless picture book in which chickens flee their coop at an Alaskan monastery and four, eluding the nuns, enjoy a day in the forest before returning home to roost. Features cut-paper artwork and a die-cut cover.

What Kind of Book is The Great Chicken Escape

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

Mom of Boys
Mom of three little boys who love books about dragons, whangdoodles and magic.
3.75 / 7.0

I thought this book had great potential as it started by telling some of the history of the island. It was very interesting to hear how they lived their lives and prepared for winter. The story itself lacked a little interest and adventure as the chickens simple leave and come home.
