Emma, the plucky but foolish cluck, is back and about to demonstrate one more time that being a chicken is not all it’s cracked up to be. In her latest escapade, Emma is one game hen with a big problem. It’s the middle of winter and the chicken coop is freezing. Determined to find out how the other farm animals weather the weather, Emma sets off on a snowy trek that almost ends in flaky, feathery disaster. Along the way she provides plenty of laughs and, once more, unwittingly saves the day.
"The author tells Emma's barnyard adventure both with humor and with empathy. Text is quite simple, perfect for read-alouds and for young readers, yet challenging enough to make the story interesting and move along at a good pace. What adds zest to the story is the work of the illustrator. . . Readers will enjoy Spurll's humorous touches... "
