“Marchini’s story and economy of telling display the chicken as total id, and Felix’s pencil-and-watercolor illustrations are genuine works of art. A surprising gem.” – Kirkus Reviews (starred review) 

“Early readers will enjoy following Chicken through her barnyard adventure and will be able to decode objects and emotions easily due to the well-defined expressions of the animals…A welcome addition to…preschool or kindergarten collections, come rain or come shine.” – School Library Journal
