A duck, a rooster and a sheep; they’re three simple farm animals headed towards Christmas dinner. But, Babaa, Chanticleer and Jemima are Pierre’s best friends. He must save them. He begs his mother, he begs his father. He enlists the aide of Babette, they gypsy fortune teller with the crystal ball.
Through most of this chapter book, the reader isn’t sure if Pierre will succeed in saving his friends. In a delightful surprise, the three friends fly high in the sky, away from their fate and to a happy ending in Monsieur Montgolfier’s palace.
