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

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