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