“Early in the morning, down on the farm, a new day is dawning, peaceful and calm,” calm that is until Hen counts her chicks and discovers that one has disappeared—again. She finds the babe in the middle of the farmyard, stuck fast in the mud. What follows is a new take on the classic “Enormous Turnip” story, with Clarke offering an exuberant, rhyming romp complete with familiar farm characters that Hen enlists to help free her chick. Cat, Dog, Sheep, Horse, and even Farmer take a turn pushing and pulling “again and again,” only to become stuck themselves. This colorfully illustrated tale, featuring broadly sketched characters in bold colors, will surely be a read-aloud favorite. moreMore Info | Google Books | Check Availability
