If your Big Mama told you NOT to chase the chickens, you wouldn’t chase the chickens, would you? When Janice Harrington was a little girl, she says she was “wicked” and liked to chase her grandmother’s chickens. The little girl in this story cannot stop chasing the chickens, especially M Hen. Now I know chickens are not very fast, but I tell you, they can be tricky, especially
when they have a secret. Miss Hen does not want to be caught. Read this book to find out if the little girl can catch Miss Hen or not – after all, the title is “The Chicken Chasing Queen…” and maybe you will get some ideas on how to catch something you really want—like a great book to read.  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards Program, 2009-2010)
