Bitter with Baggage Seeks Same: The Life and Times of Some Chickens Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chickens show off their human side in Sloane Tanen's irresistible dioramas.

With more personality than most people have to spare, New York artist Sloane Tanen's tiny yellow chickens negotiate the tricky modern world, filled with three-headed blind dates, menacing KFCs, playground popularity battles, and annoyingly crowded yoga classes. They perch amid doll furniture, in scenes photographed in glorious color and brilliantly captioned- and their lives will strike you as strangely familiar...

Charming, spiky with off-kilter wit (or waxing jobs gone terribly wrong), and somehow larger than life, these chickens win the hearts of all who behold them.

Review:

"There are dozens of chick lit titles on the market, but only one with heroines Colonel Sanders could love....[W]ickedly funny captions...aimed squarely at adults..." Publishers Weekly
