We loved the illustrations and the way the blue water color plays throughout the book.

Absolutely beautiful pictures, coupled with an amusing story!

Playful and surreal without getting so kooky that it loses its audience, Freedman knows how to write a picture book that’s bound to get kids and their parental units reading and rereading over and over and over again.

A clever and fun book on concepts and farm animals! Excellent and creative illustrations! Alike "Blue Goose" by Nancy Tafuri.

ELIZABETH RAMSEY BIRD Aug 02, 2012

sits an unfinished painting of a sleepy barnyard scene. Curious, one of the chickens in the picture notices the nearby jars of paint just outside of the frame. Unfortunately for her, this natural curiosity leads to an unprecedented spill that threatens to cover every animal in the picture. The ducklings are fairly cool about it, but the other creatures are distinctly displeased. In her effort to make things right, the chicken comes across a clear liquid that manages to wipe out all the unwanted blue except in the sky above. Content, the animals settle down back again. Only the final image in the book suggests where the chicken might be poking her nosy little beak next.
