Summary

Zoey isn't like the other chickens. She has dreams. She has plans. And she has a best friend, Sam the pig, who will join her on her wild adventures . . . if he gets to eat some pie along the way.

How will Zoey and Sam get from the barn to the stars? Will Zoey be the first chicken in space? Will Sam get a snack? One thing is certain: Zoey always finds a way.

Author Adam Lehrhaupt and illustrator Shahar Kober bring out-of-this-world energy and humor to this bright, funny tale of imagination, friendship, determination . . . and one truly adventurous chicken.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Zoey is unlike other chickens. She plans to travel in space. The other barnyard animals are indifferent and discouraging when Zoey invites them along. But Zoey and her skeptical sidekick, Sam, a pig, do manage to get airborne in a basket tied to balloons. Once in the air, they dodge a baseball, a kite, and birds, which Zoey insists are all really space objects. Ironically, back in the barnyard after they crash (unhurt), it is Sam who beguiles the other animals with tales of how he and Zoey were hit by an asteroid, dodged a comet, and battled aliens. Oversized pages with digital illustrations awash in soft colors show a comfortable farm setting, making it clear that this tale is firmly grounded, and the space illusions are only in Zoey's imagination. The body language and facial expressions of the animals imbue each with a good dose of character. It may not be out of this world, but this mild adventure provides readers with plenty of interesting traveling companions.--Enos, Randall Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Zoey, a headstrong and imaginative chicken with an aviator cap, persuades a pig named Sam to fly into space with her on a "ship" that's really a basket tied to a bunch of helium balloons. The basket actually gains some altitude, and the view Kober (The Flying Hand of Marco B.) provides-a Grant Wood-esque landscape at sunset-really is magical; the story itself seems to hover for a moment to let readers take it in. Close encounters with a baseball ("An asteroid!" says Zoey in full pretend-play mode), a kite ("A comet"), and a flock of birds ("Alien attack ships") send the basket back to Earth. Back at the barnyard, Sam recounts the adventure to their fellow barnyard animals and gives Zoey all the credit, noting that she "always finds a way." Lehrhaupt's (Please, Open This Book!) nonjudgmental tone is a breath of fresh air, and while the ending is lackadaisical, it's a pleasure to spend time with an intrepid character who gets to see her goofy dreams through.
