Publishers Weekly Reviews
Chickerella by Mary Jane Auch (who, PW said, "earns a feather in her cap for her deadpan presentation of absurdity and triumph" for Bantam of the Opera), illus. by Mary Jane and Herm Auch, stars the titular white feathered bird. When her widower father marries a gaudy black-feathered fowl, the hen sends Chickerella's father "off on a wild goose chase," redecorates the coop and locks the heroine in the springhouse nightly. Photographs of the 3-D Fairy Goosemother, the Fowl Ball and the glass egg clue are worth the price of admission. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
