Horn Book Review

In this simple, well-paced, and funny wordless picture book about a new friendship, a just-hatched chick sets off to explore the barnyard. Pips initial encounters are stressfulfirst chased by a puppy and then almost stepped on by huge cows and humansand the little chick retreats back to the egg it hatched from, finding security inside the shells two halves. Then rain begins to fall, complete with thunder and lightningand Pip sees that the puppy is miserable and afraid. Compassionately, Pip tries to protect the (much larger) Pup, offering one half of the eggshell as shelter (hey, it worked for Pip!). With this bond established and the sun coming out, the two new friends play exuberantly togethertoo exuberantly, it transpires, as in all the excitement Pup accidentally smashes Pips eggshell to smithereens. But Pup knows what to do: offer a tennis ball to play with. Yelchins visual humor here is spot-on for preschoolers; his wordless storytelling is flawless; and his palette of spring colors and use of colored pencils and oil pastels on highly textured paper bring life and energy to the page. martha v. parravano (c) Copyright 2018.
