Picky the Marvelous Chicken was not Ma’s idea of a good pet. She only agreed to keep the chick for a couple of weeks – three at the very most! – until her daughter could find a home for it. The young chick, however, did not like to be left alone, which is how she began spending her days snuggled securely in Ma’s apron pocket and, later, following along as Ma did her work. And to her surprise, Ma found that Picky responded to her gentle care in some very unexpected ways.
Young readers will delight in the endearing antics of Picky the Marvelous Chicken and her loving, patient caregiver.
