Little Chick's mother is all cluck and no action. Mama knows her old nest isn't the cozy home she and her brood need. But whenever she vows to start building a new house, she's distracted--by sweety-meaty worms, crunchy-munchy crickets, or picky-pecky corn. Luckily, her Little Chick is an industrious sort. While the rest of his family are stuffing themselves silly, he's quietly working, bit by bit, day by day.

Janice N. Harrington's retelling of a little-known Central African story is perfectly matched with Brian Pinkney's jazzy depiction of a can-do little critter.

Brian Pinkney has illustrated numerous books for children, including two Caldecott Honor books, The Faithful Friend, by Robert D. San Souci, and Duke Ellington: The Piano Prince and His Orchestra , by Andrea Davis Pinkney. The Adventures of Sparrowboy, which he both wrote and illustrated, won the 1997 Boston Globe-Horn Book Award. He also received the Coretta Scott King Award for illustration for Sukey and the Mermaid, by Robert D. San Souci and three Coretta Scott King Honor Awards.
