How can you not like this? Two barnyard chickens have to compete in a talent show with the surfing ducks, who always win, in order to snag tickets to the big Elvis Poultry concert. But what talent can the chicks, Marge and Lola, display? Attempts at bowling, juggling, even flying, are disasters. So they decide to "wing" it.
The text is simple and straightforward. Marge and Lola are very appealing. Santat can really draw a dancing chicken. The dance diagrams on the endpapers just beg a kid to get on his feet and boogie. This is a fun read-with that a kid could happily read alone after a few run throughs. The pages are big and fully illustrated with bold, enticing colors. There's enough detail to get across what's going on without being too busy, and a few little jokes tucked around the edges to reward repeated readings.
(For parents - look over the song title list for Elvis Poultry's latest album; It's on the back cover.) Rock on, indeed.
Please note that I picked up a free copy of this book at the 2015 ALA Convention. Apart from that I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.
