THE REVENGE OF THE MAGIC CHICKEN by Helen Lester, illustrated by Lynn Munsinger

Lexile      Not Rated           Pages     30           Ages     5-8

Wizard, Fairy and Magic Chicken are always arguing. One day Wizard and Fairy get so angry that Fairy turns Wizard into a cow and he turns Fairy into a blueberry muffin. Magic Chicken thinks it's the funniest thing he's ever seen and laughs and laughs and laughs. Now even more angry, Wizard and Fairy turn Magic Chicken into a ballerina.

Magic Chicken plans his revenge carefully, but in carrying it out he is having so much fun he overdoes it and his revenge nearly backfires and his friends could have been hurt. All turns out well in the end and the friends are back to their old selves, ready for a new adventure.

This book is just plain fun. The illustrations are colorful and amusing and the story teaches children that revenge can have undesirable consequences.
