What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Zelda has big plans—she wants to be the first chicken in space. She leaves nothing to chance as she builds her spaceship, plans her experiments, and packs for the journey. All she needs now is a little help from her friends, and if they won’t step up, Zelda will just have to manage on her own! Eye-popping art and a story of perseverance and ingenuity prove that for a plucky hen, the sky is never the limit.

This modern twist on the traditional The Little Red Hen story features an endearing and resourceful chicken determined to fulfill her dream
