Laura Willingham is a children’s book author and illustrator. In her “chicken” picture book series, the main character, Lily, solves problems with her crafty creations. The stories can be defined as fun, innocent, and entertaining. Not moral expounding. The titles are: “Chickens Don’t Wear Tutus!” (Mom’s Choice Awards – Gold Recipient), “Chickens Don’t Ski!” (Mom’s Choice Awards – Gold Recipient), “Chickens Don’t Live in Tree Houses!” (released 6/23/22), and “Chickens Don’t Swim!” (release date 12/1/22 and is available for preorder). Books are available (US & UK) in hardcover, eBook, and Audible (Tutu book). In this series, the author created the illustrations in a simplistic style with the intention for the illustrations to stand alone in telling the story. However, there is a text. The goal being to appeal to very young children, non-verbal children, and to be a fun/quick story for older children. She has many different illustration styles which can be seen on the SCBWI.org website.
