Elinor and Violet: The Story of Two Naughty Chickens

Author: Patti Beling Murphy

First Line: Elinor was just a little big naughty.

Why you should read it: An amusing story about a chicken who is just a little naughty until influenced by an extremely naughy chicken. Kids enjoy the taboo antics of the deliberately misbehaving characters as well as the delineation between a little bit bad and a lot bad.

Why you shouldn't read it: You are the highly suggestible type; you often feel compelled to emulate the misdeeds of anthropomorphic animals in picture books.
