Where, Oh Where, is Rosie's Chick? by Pat Hutchins

Rosie has lost her baby chick. She looks under the hen house. She looks behind the wheelbarrow. But little baby chick isn't there. But watch out Rosie - there's someone following you, and it's not just your baby chick! The funny sequel to the much-loved and bestselling Rosie's Walk, with the same element of danger and surprise that children so enjoy.


This is a diverting outing, and adults and children who are fond of Rosie will especially enjoy this companion piece. * BULLETIN OF THE CENTER FOR CHILDREN'S BOOKS * A charming sequel to the classic Rosie's Walk and an appealing read-aloud for all collections * School Library Journal * Hutchins reprises her hand-drawn style and autumnal palette, with the action unspooling across the lower margin of the spreads against a backdrop of orchards and haystacks. This mild continuation stays so true to Rosie's Walk that it could've easily been published a few years after that book, instead of almost 50 * Publishers Weekly * Where have you been all these years, Rosie? Welcome back, and hello to your little chick. * Kirkus * This sequel to the iconic Rosie's Walk is infused with the same gentle, ironic visual humour ... Highly recommended * Carousel * Bravo, Pat Hutchins, you have not lost your exquisite touch! * School Librarian * Pat Hutchins is the Harper Lee of children's books...Hutchins

. * The Times * Young children will love the 'look behind you

* The Daily Mail * Rather funny * Bookwitch * A charming, sweet and funny book about a hen who's lost her chick * huffingtonpost.co.uk * The Sixties palette manages to look bright and appealing and Hutchins's illustrations still look really stylish * Books For Keeps * A fascinating exercise in returning to your past * Tyger Tale * It's a real pleasure to see Pat Hutchins

-up picture book * Reading Zone * Fun for everyone * Primary Times * It's lovely to see Rosie back again * Daily Post *
