The Three Chickens - and Five Other Tales
The Three Chickens is the product of a storytelling workshop I did at the Madison Children's Museum called Writer's Block – in it I produced many brilliant stories with the help of my many children attendees.
I'd show up on Saturday afternoons with a prompt – "Monster Ballerinas," say, or "The Sandwich that Did not Want to Be Eaten." Then, with some gentle guidance, the children told me how the story went.
They took home pamphlets of their own illustrations, while I took home the stories. I fleshed them out, illustrated them, and designed this book. Then I crowd-funded publication costs.
There are six stories in the book, each delightfully told and richly illustrated. They are available at the Madison Children's Museum, Rainbow Bookstore Cooperative, Four Star Video Cooperative, and right here!
