Summary:
This barnyard version of the Cinderella story features a mild-mannered chicken, a fashion-conscious Fairy Goosemother, and a prince at a Fowl Ball. When Chickerella's new stepmother and stepsisters, Ovumelda and Cholestera, move in, life in the chicken coop takes a turn for the worse. Forced to cook and clean for her new family, Chickerella won't even be able to attend the Fowl Ball, that is, until her Fairy Goosemother appears. The unusually stylish Chickerella dazzles the prince in her eggsquisite gown, but at the stroke of midnight, she must race home before the spell is broken. Will the prince ever find his love? Only a glass egg remains as a clue to her identity. This hilarious fractured fairy tale spoofs high fashion and other highfalutin notions with good humor.

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.
