Synopsis

Missing Chick by Valeri Gorbachev

The whole town turns out for a search and a half in this paperback edition of a silly and satisfying lost-and-found tale. One of Mother Hen's little chicks is missing. Did they leave him in the house? Is he hiding in his bed? Under a bush? A frantic Mother Hen enlists the help of the neighbours, who search high and low but see no sign of the missing chick. Soon the firemen arrive, and a detective is on the case. But is the little chick really missing? Or did he just find a quiet place for a nap? With energetic illustrations and a cast of wonderfully comical characters, Valeri Gorbachev tells a lighthearted, over-the-top tale of a little chick lost...and happily found. Valeri Gorbachev is a much acclaimed illustrator whose work is often compared to that of Richard Scarry. Children will find reassurance in this humorous account of a missing youngster, and the lengths the adults go to find him.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
