The Chicken of the Family by Mary Amato
Poor Henrietta--her older sisters never stop teasing her! When they tell her she's a chicken, she begins to wonder if it's true. One morning she even finds an egg in her bed and feathers on the floor! Convinced of her fowl heritage, she heads to the farm to unite with her real chicken family, proving that birds of a feather don't always flock together.
This funny little book will hit home with anyone who's been teased by siblings, as well as practical jokers. The vivid "henscratchy" illustrations by Delphine Durand are fun and quirky, the perfect compliment to the text.
