After falling out of Farmer's truck, Chicken must find his own way home in this goofy, laugh-out-loud story about overcoming obstacles and believing in yourself. It has not been a good day for Chicken. He went to the fair with Farmer, but didn't win even one ribbon. And on the way home, the road is so bumpy that Farmer's truck knocks Chicken right out He's been left behind It's the end for Chicken. Surely, he can't walk all the way home. Or avoid the hungry fox along the way. Or maybe...he can? This rollicking picture book will have little ones in giggles over Chicken's misadventures and chiming in on the plucky fowl's mantra "I am a strong and powerful and nice-looking chicken " as he achieves more than he thought possible.
