Chicken Cordon Bleu

Here's a little song Dad made up while preparing dinner:

Once
There was a chicken
Who married a pig
And they had
Cor-
don
Bleu
Babies

Well, Gracie decided to flesh out this little tale with illustrations!



The chicken and pig are falling in love


The wedding


The chicken lays a bunch of eggs. The first one hatches and out pops a cute little cordon bleu patty! Happy papa looks on...


The chicken finds the pig snacking on their babies!


...so she kicks him out.

A tragic tale indeed!

Very talented! I love how the illustrations perfectly tell the story and how that daddy pig has his mouth full of chicken!!!! Her kicking him out with the curves showing movement is a nice touch. This is too funny and very cute!
