I read Pigs to Rescue first which I loved because the facial expressions of the pigs was a laugh a minute. The problem with using chickens as your main characters is with those beaks, they have no facial expression. The chickens here looked mostly chaotic and what they did was not cute or funny. There were way too many chickens. Thumbs up for nice illustrations otherwise.
Do I recommend this book? Maybe. Very little kids will enjoy the pictures.

A simple story, but the chickens are hilarious.

The pictures and story are hilarious fun. Great audience participation story if you can get all the kids to yell "CHICKENS TO THE RESCUE" at the appropriate moments.

It's fun to watch the chickens as they help the different members of the family and the other farm animals get out of sticky situations. Probably best for for pre-school and up.
