Three Hens and a Peacock
by Lester L. Laminack and Henry Cole




Overview -

A hilarious read-aloud favorite about some foolish farm animals who decide to trade roles--and discover just how hard it is to do someone else's job. From award-winning author Lester Laminack and celebrated illustrator Henry Cole.

"Good farm fun." ―Kirkus Reviews

The Tuckers' farm is a peaceful place where everyone has a job and no one complains. That is, until a hapless peacock falls off the back of a passing truck and stirs things up. Soon, customers are flocking to the farm to see what all the fuss is about. But the hens don't like the newcomer getting attention while they do all the hard work. When a wise old hound sees the problem, he helps orchestrate a job swap.

What follows is the riotous tale of three hens who get in way over their feathered heads, and one very distressed peacock who just can't figure out how to lay an egg.

Lester Laminack has created a comical look at envy, finding your strength, and what happens when we underestimate the value of others' work. Henry Cole's delightful illustrations heighten the story's humor and will have readers of all ages laughing out loud.
