Early in the morning, down on the farm, a new day is dawning, peaceful and calm. But then chaos strikes - Hen discovers one of her chicks is stuck in the mud! One by one, all the farm animals try and help pull the chick out, but of course they get stuck too. And seeing all her friends stuck in the mud is just when the naughty chick plops out - 'You pushed and you pulled, again and again, but I'm not stuck now and I wasn't stuck then!'

“Early in the morning, down on the farm, a new day is dawning, peaceful and calm,” calm that is until Hen counts her chicks and discovers that one has disappeared—again. She finds the babe in the middle of the farmyard, stuck fast in the mud. What follows is a new take on the classic “Enormous Turnip” story, with Clarke offering an exuberant, rhyming romp complete with familiar farm characters that Hen enlists to help free her chick. Cat, Dog, Sheep, Horse, and even Farmer take a turn pushing and pulling “again and again,” only to become stuck themselves. This colorfully illustrated tale, featuring broadly sketched characters in bold colors, will surely be a read-aloud favorite. The surprise gatefold near the end of the book will delight children, who will surely see themselves in Chick—who really wasn’t stuck; he just wanted company to play in the mud.
