If you like Mo Willems’ Pigeon, you’ll love Sam Wedelich’s Chicken Little!
Chicken Little is NOT afraid of anything, not even a wolf. No matter how big or bad he is.

In fact, she's never even seen a wolf.

So when a real wolf shows up and ruffles her feathers, what's a fretful fowl to do: Join the frenzied flock and fly the coop? Or find out if this newcomer is as bad as his reputation?

The plucky star of Chicken Little: The Real and Totally True Tale goes toe-to-toe with literature's most famous villain in this brilliant comedy spun with sly wisdom.

'Chicken Little and the Big Bad Wolf' by Sam Wedelich is an adorable retelling of the classic tale. There are lots of questions to be answered, including how big and bad the wolf actually is, along with probably the biggest question of all: why isn't Chicken Little afraid of the wolf?

The drawings only serve to heighten the dramatic element the book tries to convey as Chicken Little tells the other animals about the wolf. One particularly compelling page shows two podiums, with 'Team Fight' and 'Team Flight' marking them. The animals look exceedingly angry or concerned, depending on which side they find themselves on when they hear the news of the wolf's impending arrival.

Chicken Little soon decides to investigate to see just what all of the fuss is about the Big Bad Wolf. Before long, Chicken Little decides that it may be worthwhile to just ask the source. The wolf's response is sweet and surprising, teaching readers that things may not always be what they seem, and how asking for others' thoughts might be the ticket to better understanding.
