Auch, Mary Jane and Herm. 2009. The Plot Chickens. New York: Holiday House.
Full of puns and poultry yolks, I mean jokes, The Plot Chickens is a tongue-in-cheek look at writing a book. With the help of an encouraging, young(!) librarian , Henrietta the chicken writes her own book, and it's even reviewed in Corn Book Magazine, although reviewer "Noah Lyke" notes,
"Henrietta lays an egg with her first book."
"Rule 7: Make your story come alive by using all five senses"
and funny at the same time, this book is a brightly-illustrated, hilarious look at the writing process.
