About the Book
Why so moody, broody Trudy?

As families embrace the farm-to-table food movement, more and more people are housing chickens on their balconies and in their backyards. Children growing up in urban environments surrounded by rural animals experience both the benefits and humor of farm life. Chickens provide farm-fresh eggs year-round, but they can also be noisy and stubborn, just like Trudy. Sylvia has one moody chicken who will not give up her eggs! Exciting and entertaining illustrations accompany this informative story about one annoying chicken—why she is like that and how Sylvia, eventually, cheers her up! An author’s note introduces the reader to the real chicken that inspired this story.

My Take on the Book
Jane Sutton wrote a humorous and informative story for young children. You and your child will enjoy learning about a broody hen in this story. Sylvia and her grandmother helped Trudy , the hen, actually hatch some eggs. Trudy thought she could do it but she needed the help of Sylvia and her grandmother. The humans used a book to help them understand the hen's behavior and then brought about the positive result of chicks being hatched by Trudy.

The illustrations by Peter J. Welling adds so much humor to the text. The expressions on the faces of the humans and the animals will bring a smile to your face.
