Emma’s Cold Day

Fitzhenry & Whiteside, ISBN: 0-7737-33140

Emma, the plucky but foolish cluck, is back and about to demonstrate one more time that being a chicken is not all it’s cracked up to be. In her latest escapade, Emma is one game hen with a big problem. It’s the middle of winter and the
chicken coop is freezing. Determined to find out how the other farm animals weather the weather, Emma sets off on a snowy trek that almost ends in flaky, feathery disaster. Along the way she provides plenty of laughs and, once more, unwittingly saves the day.
