Beautiful Yetta The Yiddish Chicken by Daniel Pinkwater
Such a cute book!
When Mr. Flegleman, the organic chicken rancher takes a load of chickens to market, the brave and beautiful Yetta escapes into the unknown world of Brooklyn. Yetta speaks in Yiddish, written in Hebrew and translated into English and transliterated. She finds Brooklyn to be strange and frightening until she bravely saves Eduardo the parrot, who speaks Spanish, from a cat. She settles in and begins to enjoy life in Brooklyn with her new parrot friends.
I think the book is very cute and funny and I enjoyed it very much!
