The antics of the chickens and pigs are hilarious and the kids enjoy shouting, “Chickens to the Rescue” and "Pigs to the Rescue." They eagerly make the appropriate clucking and oinking sound effects. Spotting the single chicken or pig with its ears cocked for a problem is a big part of the fun. When the animals come to the rescue, to say that it is disorderly is an understatement, but the chickens do successfully get the job done, the pigs on the other hand . . . The double pages spreads of all of the chickens or pigs, each frantically working, are full of zany details that kids will look over repeatedly. We have not yet read Himmelman's latest book in the series Cows to the Rescue but will do so soon.
