Dear Mr. Pinkwater,
A friend of mine introduced me to Beautiful Yetta, the Yiddish Chicken. I loved the book. I am known as the chicken lady, because several years ago, I found a chicken on the side of the road, in Dallas no less. I named my chicken Hannah. Being a Kindergarten teacher, I wrote a story about her for my children: Hannah, the Chanukah Hen. Like Yetta, my chicken, I believed jumped a poultry truck. I was a bi-lingual Kindergarten teacher, and so appreciate the multi lingual book. I have bought several books to give away, and a couple to keep :0)

Daniel replies:

Your post does not indicate whether you know both the Yetta books, Beautiful Yetta the Yiddish Chicken, and Beautiful Yetta's Hanukkah Kitten. It may be that truth is even stranger than fiction than we knew.
