Synopsis

Chicken Dance by Tammi Sauer

Meet Marge and Lola, chickens on a mission: to win tickets for the Elvis Poultry Show! But their toughest competition is a pack of menacing ducks. Can our two feisty chicks show those quackers how to rock the barnyard? Tammi Sauer and Dan Santat have whipped up a giddy, goofy romp where cows fly over the moon, ducks surf in a water trough, and one very familiar-looking rooster gets all shook up!

Reviews

The zippy narrative features punchy dialogue and witty interactions

With snappy banter...and tightly constructed storytelling, Sauer ( Cowboy Camp) pulls off the neat trick of both embracing and spoofing the against-all-odds genre. Totally in sync with his collaborator, Santat's . . . sculptural, mixed media pictures exude an old-fashioned, theatrical drama that lifts the many jokes visual and textual into sublime silliness.
