Henry Holt, March 2016

Chicken Lily may be a lot of things--a careful colorer, a patient puzzler, and a quiet hide-and-seeker (she never makes a peep!)--but brave is not one of them. When her teacher, Mrs. Lop, plans a school-wide poetry jam, Lily is terrified. She doesn't want to stand in front of everyone and sound like a birdbrain! With encouragement from her friends Baabette and Pigsley, Lily decides to hatch a plan. Can she put her best claw forward and prove that even chickens aren't chicken all the time?
