A newly hatched chick approaches a sleeping puppy, who awakens and frightens the chick with its rambunctious behavior. The chick retreats to its shell. When it starts to storm, the puppy cowers beneath a tractor. The emboldened chick approaches, assesses the situation, and places the top half of its shell on the puppy’s head for protection and comfort. The sun comes out, the new friends play, and there’s still a surprise or two in store in this captivating wordless story. Mixed media, including oil pastels and colored pencils, give a crayon-like quality to the expressive illustrations of a story that, for all its playfulness and gentle charm, has wonderful moments of drama. (Ages 2–5)
