Grand Prize, Ex aequo - 2000 Luxcanada, illustration, children's book  Most chickens have enough sense to run when a coyote comes near. 
Not Emma.
She thinks she can outfox a hungry canine despite the warnings of the farmer and his family.
One day the suspense reaches a peak when the hungry coyote comes a little too close.
Will Emma's "uncanny good luck" hold out even if her common sense doesn't? Margriet Ruurs has once again created a hen-house farce that will draw chuckles from fans of this plucky chicken.
Barbara Spurll's trademark animal caricatures will delight as they bring this barnyard comedy to life.

  •     An absolutely delightful tale of barnyard intrigue. Emma is noordinary chicken! She is determined to overcome her fears and outsmartthe evil coyote who lurks around the hen house. In spite of comments like "a chicken can't outsmart a coyote!", she believes in herself and teaches children to do the same. This book gives a wonderful positive message to our children and will help them develop good self-esteem. The illustrations are colorful and entertaining. My children loved it! My daughter's entire kindergarten class wanted it to be read over and over again! This one's a keeper!
