Summary
A wonderfully silly take on library story time that's perfect for children, chickens, and everyone in between

Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to story time at the library, of course! The children like the chicken, the chicken likes the children, and everyone loves story time. So it's no surprise that more children (and more chickens!) get in on the fun until there are more kids and critters than the librarian knows what to do with. Luckily, she comes up with a creative solution and manages to find little R & R for herself.

Fans of Bats in the Library and Library Lion will fall in love and story time will never be the same!
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "It's a summer storytime at the library: One librarian. One story. Children. And a chicken. The chicken climbs in through the window, sits with the kids, and listens quietly, so all is well. The following week, more children and more chickens join the fun. But the next week, even more children and many more chickens show up. Between the clucking, the fooling around, and the book-cart racing, it's pandemonium until the librarian deputizes the kids, settling each one down with a book to read and a little cluster of chickens to listen to the story. Wasting no words on description and embellishment, Asher tells this amusing tale with straightforward phrases in a deadpan tone, leaving plenty of room for visual humor in the artwork. Fearing's expressive, cartoon-style illustrations begin with orderly calm, rise to a chaotic crescendo, and quiet down again at the end. Along the way, there are plenty of amusing details for observant viewers to enjoy. A pleasure for reading aloud, with or without chickens.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Children will know that they are in for some poultry-themed hijinks from the first page of this off-kilter story, as a chicken spots a poster for "story time at the library." As kids stream into the library, the chicken gives readers a knowing glance-she's ready to make her move. She's friendly ("The children like the chicken. The chicken likes the children"), well-behaved, and attentive, so the librarian is chill about it (after all, "everyone loves story time"). But as chickens and kids show up in ever-larger numbers (one chicken even slips in through the book return slot), crowd control becomes difficult and proper library behavior goes out the window. What's a librarian to do? Asher's (Here Comes Gosling!) poker-faced, repeating text ("One library. One story. Many children. Many chickens") offers the perfect setup for Fearing's wonderfully silly and well-choreographed cartooning, which proves that children and chickens are equally skilled at creating chaos. And the resolution points to another advantage of becoming a reader: you can lead a cross-species story time yourself. Ages 3-5. Illustrator's agent: Sean McCarthy, Sean McCarthy Literary.
