Jez Alborough - All books by this author

    “The sun looks down on a beautiful day.
    Five little chicks come out to play . . .”
Sparkling rhythmic text, a clever plot, and adorably detailed illustration are the markers of award-winning children’s author Jez Alborough’s latest book, Six Little Chicks.

Mother Hen has five little chicks to take care of—and she’s also concerned about one more egg that hasn’t yet hatched. Meanwhile, the big bad fox is on the prowl. Can Mother Hen keep all her chicks—and that sixth egg—out of danger? The ensuing adventure is filled with suspense, surprises, and more than a few big laughs. Children will want to hear the story of Mother Hen and her brave little chicks over and over again.

Best-selling author Jez Alborough knows a thing or two about great children’s books. In 2000 Jez created Hug - a powerful book of only three words about a baby chimpanzee called Bobo who loses his Mom. Oprah Winfrey raved about it on her show and chose it for her recommended reading for children. Bobo went on to star in two more classics: Tall (which along with Hug won the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Book Award) and Yes. The series has sold 1.76 million copies. (Ages 3–6)

From the reviews:
“Vibrant panels and sunny full-bleed pages render each animal’s body movements as they hop, swoop, cheep, and strut across the page. Dramatic full-page spreads show close-ups of the green-eyed fox with his vivid-orange head squeezed through the door, grinning and snapping his jaws wide in toothy anticipation. In a comical denouement, the clever chicks figure out a way to outsmart the fox. A satisfying head count at the end means all is well as the sixth bright-yellow chick cracks his way out of his egg. Author-illustrator Alborough offers up a fast-moving read-aloud and a fun way for young children to practice counting.”
