The Chicken-Chasing Queen of Lamar County

Written by Janice Harrington
Illustrated by Shelley Jackson

  • 2008 Charlotte Zolotow Award Highly Commended Title

Meet one smart chicken chaser. She can catch any chicken on her grandmother’s farm except one – the elusive Miss Hen. In a hilarious battle of wits, the spirited narrator regales readers with her campaign to catch Miss Hen, but this chicken is “fast as a mosquito buzzing and quick as a fleabite.” Our chicken chaser has her mind set on winning, until she discovers that sometimes it’s just as satisfying not to catch chickens as it is to catch them.
 
A fresh voice full of sass and inventive, bold collage illustrations full of surprises create a childlike escapade brimming with funny high jinks that leads the reader on a merry, memorable chase.
 
The Chicken-Chasing Queen of Lamar County is a 2008 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
