chickenlittle

You may already know the tale of a not-quite-so-bright little chicken whose encounter with an acorn and gravity convinces him the sky is falling, but you’ve never seen the story told this way. A brilliant collaboration brings us a bold and colorful retelling of the classic tale, as crazy-eyed Chicken and all his panicked friends run away from the sky and right into an eye-catching gatefold surprise.

(Puede que ya conozcas el cuento del no muy brillante pollito cuyo encuentro con una bellota y la ley de la gravedad le convenció de que el cielo se estaba cayendo, pero seguro que nunca habías visto la historia contada de esta forma. Esta brillante colaboración padre-hija nos trae una audaz y colorida nueva versión del cuento con una gallina de ojos locos y todos sus amigos aterrorizados huyendo del cielo y directos a una llamativa sorpresa).

Swishety-swishety-swishety —sweep the house. Flumpety-flumpety-flumpety — shake out the bedclothes. Clickety-clickety-clickety —work on all the knitting. But then there is nothing left to do. So, they tear everything apart and start again! Clankety-clankety-clankety, swishety-swishety-swishety . . . . The fairies are driving the old woman crazy! How will she get them to leave?

(Había una vez una anciana que odiaba hacer los quehaceres de la casa: ¡Trabajo, trabajo, trabajo! ¡Como lo odio! Un día aparecieron unas hadas que limpiaron los platos, barrieron la casa, sacudieron la ropa de cama y tejieron todo lo que estaba pendiente hasta que no quedó nada que hacer. Entonces deshicieron todo lo que habían arreglado y volvieron a empezar. La anciana se estaba volviendo loca con ellas ¿Cómo podría hacerlas marchar?)
