LOVE this book. LOVE it. Really. Adore it. The three little chicks in it remind me of Madeline, and my three nieces. Who are all good, but indeed do have moxie, and aren't really the demure, mild-mannered sort of gals. They're loud. They like mud, bugs and worms. They like to run around in their birthday suits pretending to be warrior princesses... In a word, they are glorious. Just like this book.
Tough Chicks by Cece Meng tells the story of three tough chicks who are not like the other "good" quiet and orderly chicks in the hen house. These chicks are curious, boisterous, inventive, loud, dare devilish, smart little cookies, who save the day (in spite of everyone telling their Mama to "make them be good!")
This book I will buy, and gift, to many, many children. Check it out.
