Chicken Licken finds a Turkey in the Straw

I DID IT! I entered the SCBWI's Tomie dePaola Illustration Contest. The challenge was open to SCBWI members to illustrate a text taken from the story of Chicken Licken (Chicken Little).

Goosey Loosey, Ducky Daddles, Cocky Locky, Henny Penny and Chicken Licken find Turkey Lurkey and tell him that the sky is falling and that they are going to tell the King. They convince Turkey Lurkey of the urgency of the matter and joins them on their quest.

It may be only funny to me (and maybe some bluegrass fans), but I thought - how funny it would be if they found the Turkey in the Straw? This is the title of an old fiddling tune.

There you have it, now go tell the King.
