Loopy Coop Hens

Pip's Trip by Janet Morgan Stoeke is another Minerva Louise like story.  On first reading, I love these silly chickens, Midge, Pip, and Dot.  It read very much like an early reader and even has 'chapters'.  It doesn't have a contents page, but there are six different titles within the story.  It's such a cute story, and the chickens have the greatest expressions.  Check out Janet Morgan Stoeke's Website. She describes how she renders her art, and there is biographical information. Minerva Louise, Stoeke's first published story, in 1988, is a classic. She has more books planned for this new trio of chickens, so keep a look out for them.
