What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Who says a little chick can’t make big, loud animal noises?

Most little chicks barely make a peep, but not this little chick! While his brothers and sisters nestle close to their mother hen, this little chick struts off on his own to make some new friends in the farmyard. And he has a wonderful time of it - sliding off the back of a shiny pink pig, hopping along with frogs, skipping with a flock of frisky sheep, and imitating all the sounds these animals make. Full of playful detail, John Lawrence’s bold, energetic engravings will keep toddlers smiling, long after the oinking, mooing, baaing, and quacking are over.

Who Wrote This Little Chick

author & illustrator
John Lawrence

John Lawrence’s signature wood engravings grace the pages of many classic novels and anthologies. But to do the large bold engravings for THIS LITTLE CHICK, he chose to work in vinyl. He says of this book, “I always wanted to do a book for very young children and was delighted when a little chick turned up on my doorstep.” John Lawrence’s other books for children include THE MYSTERIES OF ZIGOMAR by Allan Ahlberg and A YEAR AND A DAY by William Mayne.
