The comedy duo of Chicken and Egg is back in a new adventure. Chicken and Egg, Book 3: Do Chickens Have Lips? has the pair attending a square dance. They first must ask their dates, Dolly Duck and Eggwina, in person. After the girls say yes, they must decide on an outfit, which takes “a ridiculously long time.” Then Chicken starts thinking about the goodnight kiss. There is just one problem, he doesn’t know whether he has lips! Egg stares at Chicken’s beak but is unsure whether or not it qualifies as lips. The evening of the dance arrives, and they have a marvelous time. Then comes the moment of truth, as Chicken gives Dolly a peck on the cheek.

Chicken and Egg, Book 3: Do Chickens Have Lips? is laugh-out-loud funny. Deborah Stevenson has created a marvelous comedy duo that kids and adults will enjoy. I love the repeated phrase “a ridiculously long time”. There are so many subtle and not-so-subtle jokes in the book that makes this a perfect read-aloud. As a retired children’s librarian, Do Chickens Have Lips? would be a book I would have read frequently in storytime. In my experience, kids love funny books and enjoy being in on the humor. Chicken and Egg are memorable characters that kids will ask for again and again. The illustrations by David Stedmond are perfect. Egg and Chicken are so expressive and so dapper in their party clothes. Do Chickens Have Lips? is one you will enjoy for a “ridiculously long time.”
