The Missing Chick

By Valeri Gorbachev
Illustrated by Valeri Gorbachev

Little chicks will be reassured when the town turns out for a search in this amusing, gently suspenseful tale with a sweet, satisfying ending.

One of Mother Hen’s little chicks is missing. Did they leave him in the house? Is he hiding in his bed? Under a bush? A frantic Mother Hen enlists the help of obliging neighbors, who search high and low but see no sign of the missing chick. Soon the firemen arrive, and a detective is on the case. But is the little chick really missing? Or did he just find a quiet place for a nap? With bright illustrations and comically expressive animal characters, Valeri Gorbachev tells a lighthearted, over-the-top tale of a little chick lost — and happily found.

  • Valeri Gorbachev is a well-known and well-regarded illustrator whose work is often favorably compared to Richard Scarry's.
  • A humorous and ultimately reassuring story about a missing chick -- and the lengths the adults go to find him!
