Peeping Beauty by Mary Jane Auch
Poulette is a ballet-dancing chicken with visions of stardom. Her visions cloud her judgment when a fast-talking fox "talent scout" appears to cast her in the production of "Peeping Beauty." Though the other hens try to warn her that it is a trick, Poulette is unable to see her predictament because of her love for tutus and applause. The book offers lessons in friendship, caution, mercy, and self-worth. Illustrations convey both the humor and drama of the story. They are simple yet colorful and engaging.
