Pub. Date:
The four big chickens who were afraid of everything in their wellreceived debut,Big Chickens, are now feeling all cooped up, so they set off to find the farmhouse. But where, the hapless hens wonder, is it? First they find a doghouse (loud barking!); then they run into a tractor (ewww, dirty!); and then they stomp into the barn (wild horses!). Who knew the farmhouse was right under their beaks the whole time? Sidesplitting silliness abounds in this second riotously funny read-aloud by Leslie Helakoski, once again illustrated with Henry Cole?s boisterous art.

display_description "Finding the farmhouse is no picnic for this pack of panicky poultry! The four big chickens are all cooped up when their dream is to see the farmhouse--so they set out in search of it. But what makes something a farmhouse anyway? A roof? Not, that's a doghouse! A chimney? No, that's a tractor! It's nothing but mixed-up mayhem when hapless hens with the right idea go looking for the farmhouse in all the wrong places. Sidesplitting silliness abounds as those crazy chickens return with another flapping-fluffing-squawking-flocking farmyard adventure. Henry Cole's boisterous art captures the spirit of this riotously funny new read-aloud and follow-up to the smash hit Big Chickens."--From publisher description.
