Chicken admires Scarecrow's hat, and she devises a clever plan to obtain the walking stick that Scarecrow would swap his hat for. Chicken embarks on a quest, asking her animal friends each to part with something to be traded to someone else until all of them have exactly what they desire, including Chicken, who has a special plan for the straw hat. A satisfying tale about giving away what you don't need in exchange for what you would love to have. The story is enhanced by Brown's warm and friendly watercolors. Perfect for fall storytime.
