Author Info
James Marshall
James Marshall had planned to be a professional musician. He studied at the New England Conservatory of Music, but an injury to his hand forced him to switch career goals. He attended Trinity College, where he received a master's degree in French and history, after which he became, surprisingly, a Spanish teacher. Marshall's natural talent as an artist led an editor to hire him to illustrate Byrd Baylor's PLINK, PLINK, PLINK in 1971. The following year, Marshall established himself as both an author and illustrator with his picture book GEORGE AND MARTHA. His 1988, his illustrations for GOLDILOCKS earned that book a Caldecott Honor. In addition to his picture books, Marshall is well known for his series of easy readers featuring the exploits of Fox, a lazy yet debonair showoff. During his career, Marshall created many unforgettable characters, including Joe and Spud (THE CUT-UPS), Miss Nelson and Miss Viola Swamp (MISS NELSON IS MISSING!) and the entire Stupid family (THE STUPIDS HAVE A BALL).
Praise
"Another delicious, laugh-filled story from a favorite author-illustrator."
From the Publisher
Annotation A sensible chicken named Harriet must save her silly chicken pal, Winnie, when Winnie goes off for an adventure with a stranger named Mr. Johnson--who just happens to be a fox. Will Harriet be able to stop Mr. Johnson from turning Winnie into his dinner? Colorful pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations accompany the text.
First Line Harriet and Winnie were as different as two chickens could be. Harriet was enormously fond of reading. "Frankly, I'd rather swat flies," said Winnie.
Editors Note Silly Minnie finds herself in all kinds of trouble when she accepts a balloon ride from a crafty fox, and it is up to her sensible friend Harriet to rescue her. Simultaneous.
