9781250046734: Mrs. Chicken and the Hungry Crocodile

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.

About the Author :

Won-Ldy Paye was trained as a storyteller by his grandmother. He is from the Dan people of northeastern Liberia, and now lives in Seattle, Washington.

Margaret H. Lippert has taught in the United States as well as in Guatemala and Tanzania, where she learned many stories. She lives on Mercer Island, Washington.

Julie Paschkis is a painter and illustrator who makes her home in Seattle, Washington.

From School Library Journal :

PreSchool-Grade 3-Narcissistic Mrs. Chicken, not satisfied with the small reflection she can see in a puddle, makes her way to the river where a hungry predator lies in wait. Seeing Crocodile instead of herself in the water, she is amazed by what she thinks is her new appearance and turns this way and that while the wily reptile mirrors her movements. When Mrs. Chicken steps into the river for a closer look, Crocodile quickly catches her and takes her home to eat. But the fowl turns out to be clever enough to concoct an egg-switching scheme that convinces Crocodile that they are sisters, and Mrs. Chicken eventually wins freedom for herself and her offspring. Told in straightforward language, this trickster tale is smart and funny. The story, which comes from the Dan people of Liberia, previously appeared in the retellers' Why Leopard Has Spots (Fulcrum, 1998), and this newly illustrated version is perfect for a younger audience. The stylized, gouache artwork is strong and streamlined, and not bogged down with detail. Curving lines depict the river, white backgrounds represent the outdoors, and glossy black delineates Crocodile's lair, which is decorated with geometric borders. The layout is effective, with parts of the reptile's body often extending off the page to insinuate size. The flat paintings recall folk art, and Crocodile's checkerboard skin reflects the patterns found in her home. This delectable offering will be a hit in storytime.
