KIRKUS REVIEW

When best friends Piglet and Yellow Hen get into a big argument, the other animals intercede. Piglet and Yellow Hen do everything together. One sunny day, Yellow Hen is making daisy chains for herself and some other animals when Piglet runs over and wants to play catch. A small spat mushrooms into a “huge row,” with both refusing to apologize. Sheep and Cow and Duck come up with an ingenious plan to get the two friends back together. Using an old rubber glove and some feathers, they make a fake Yellow Hen and stick it in the back of Farmer Barrow’s truck. A distraught Sheep tells Piglet that Yellow Hen’s about to be taken to market. Just as Piglet grips the crate that holds the fake Yellow Hen, the real Yellow Hen rushes onto the scene. There’s a quick reconciliation, with a mutual promise never to fight again. Shearing’s light and lighthearted watercolors fit nicely with the simple story about friendship. (Picture book. 3-5)
