About the Book

Grandpa is home alone with the chickens when a thunderstorm strikes. He must get dressed and go out into the thunder, lightning, and pouring rain to make sure all of the chickens are in a safe place. But it’s a big job rounding up the Hollywood hens who are afraid of the storm. It looks like grandpa is going to need some help to get the last chick back into the coop.
