My Review:

Chicken Does Not Want to be a Chicken is the first book in a new beginner reader series created by the talented duo, author Elsa Takaoka and illustrator Catherine Toennisson. Even with the short sentences, the story was able to be funny with a hint at a deeper message. Being yourself and not trying to be someone else is best. Amanda (age 9) and I both think that this will be a fun book for kids learning to read.

About the Author:
Elsa Takaoka

Budding author Elsa Takaoka puts her pen to paper and creates a fun and heart-warming story. Spinning words with natural creativity, Elsa discovered her love of language at a very early age. She then pursued a career in Speech Language Pathology and English as a Second Language until the birth of her first daughter. Reading to her own little girls sparked her whimsical journey through children’s literature. Her dream to write and publish a picture book was achieved with Goo and Spot and The Do Not Wiggle Riddle, the first in the Goo and Spot book series.

Currently, Elsa lives in Fukuoka, Japan with her sources of inspiration- her loving husband and their two adorable little girls.

She continued into her career, working as a storyboard revisionist for Big Idea Entertainment, and then into freelance. Illustrating a series of children's books written by Elsa Takaoka.
