Publisher's Summary

Don Schmidt's birthday is coming fast! He can't wait to find out what kind of surprises his mom and dad are sure to have in store for him. But when Don's special day finally arrives, he is saddened when his weird parents get into another argument. What can Don do to make his mom see that he is a good son?

Acclaimed children's author Jacques Couvillon grew up on a Louisiana chicken farm, just like the young protagonist in The Chicken Dance.

    Story
    "cute and touching"

    Brought to life with a great reading that really captures the naive first person narrative's spirit. Lots of funny moments and a few very touching ones as friendship and love and the lack of both are explored.

    "very talented storyteller...telling a painful tale"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The listening (which I attribute to the narrator) is fine.


    What could Jacques Couvillon have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I was under the impression, from books that were linked as similar, that this book was an upbeat coming-of-age story. In fact it was an agonizing story of the neglect and abuse that a crazy, selfish mother inflicted on a kind child. The story was made more real by the talent of the author.
