The author and illustrator who gave us Kiss Good Night and Guess Who, Baby Duck! here offer three adventures of the ever-curious Little Chick, in a boxed set of petite board books for prereaders. In The Carrot That Would Not Grow, The Kite That Would Not Fly, and The Starry Night, Little Chick finds the world not quite as she expects, though her wise auntie shows her it is beautiful as it is. Anita Jeram's watercolors are realistically detailed yet full of personality.
