Review:
Set in 1914 and based on a true incident, May's adventure is told in the first-person language of a rural child. May badly wants to visit her grandmother who lives seventy-five miles away on the other side of the Idaho mountains. When her parents tell her that they can't afford a train ticket, May is crushed. Her parents decide to mail their disappointed chick to her grandmother as just that-a baby chick. The pictures are humor tinged and lovely, and the prose is spot-on.
