Pip, Midge, and Dot are the cute but clueless hens of Loopy Coop Farm. Every day they watch the farmer's truck drive away, and they wonder what it would be like to take a ride. Finally, Pip gathers her courage, climbs into the back, and closes her eyes. The truck rumbles to life, and when Pip opens her eyes, she's back on the farm. What a ride! But for these hens, every adventure is a misadventure, and readers are in for a funny surprise. With short, easy-to-read text and hilarious illustrations, this uproarious read-aloud will have you rumbling with laughter.
The Loopy Coop Hens are back and curious about the "wide world" beyond the farm; the farmer's red truck, though it's loud and scary, is just the ticket. But Pip ends up alone in the truck and it starts rumbling. Stoeke's chapter-style headings and simple sentences give early readers sure footing while conveying the hens' personalities and emotions, as Pip's bravado turns to fear, pride, disappointment, and eventually contentment. As lovably oblivious but also supportive of each other as ever, Stoeke's hens remain a winning trio. Ages 3 5.
