When one big-eyed chick fails to yank its prize worm from the ground, it’s time to bring in a friend—and then another, and another. But if adding a rooster to the crew still doesn’t do the trick, could it be that a worm isn’t always what it seems? Each turn of the page brings a new number and a new rhyme in this delightful debut from both author and illustrator.

Fresh illustrations, a rollicking text, and a growing succession of cute little chicks make the counting go down easy.

author’s comments:
Jan Whiten spent her early years at a tiny rural school with one room and one teacher for all grades. Her love of reading children’s books led her to write her own stories, and Chooky-Doodle-Doo is her first book. She lives in Australia.
illustrator’s comments:
Sinéad Hanley uses pencil, paper cuts, textures, and screen printing in her artwork, which is inspired by folklore, nature, optical art, and her collection of kitsch books and encyclopedias. This is her first book. She lives in Australia.
