Description
Pauline Poulet may be a hen, but she's not chickenhearted. When she overhears the farmer uttering suspicious words like "chicken pie, delicious," Pauline makes a daring dash for the woods, only to be trapped by a hungry fox. "Pauline, prevail!" becomes her rallying cry, as she goes on to drift at sea, escape from pussycat pirates, pilot a hot air balloon, ride a kite, and ultimately land, bedraggled but whole, in a friendly petting zoo. Ellen Kelley relates the tale for youngster up to 7 as Pauline herself told it, full of alliteration and rhyming couplets, while animator Michael Slack provides expressive, hilarious cartoons in digital mixed media.

"The text ripples with big, impressive words befitting the exaggerated nature of Pauline's adventures: 'I navigate high altitudes, / an aeronaut with fortitude. / Above me burns a blaze of stars, / below the view blurs fast and far.' Language-arts teachers will have a field day with this one, and the tone and zany sensibilities of the story and pictures are a perfect match for the funny bones of an early elementary audience."School Library Journal (starred review)
