The chickens have a message for their owners: they're tired of arugula salad, how about putting a fan in their hot coop, and why are all the hens named "Joyce"? As the children walk around their farm, they discover more and more suggestions scratched into the dirt. The family can hardly believe it. What will the chickens possibly want next? With gentle wit, the Newbery Medal-winning author of Sarah, Plain and Tall shows what a truly cooperative farm might look like, while Jarrett Krosoczka's paintings of these opinionated fowl add further whimsy to this tale for readers 4 to 7.
