Beautiful Yetta: The Yiddish Chicken - Daniel Pinkwater,  Jill Pinkwater (Illustrator)
I checked this out based on the recommendation of vegbooks.org and I have to say that, for me, it was a miss. I've definitely enjoyed Pinkwater's stuff in the past (Irving and Muktuk: Two Bad Bears) and I'm all for a good organic Yiddish chicken story (who isn't?), but this one just didn't come together. First, the story is very slim and not super engaging and the Yiddish language aspect just felt like a tacked on gimmick. I won't hold this one against vegbooks or Pinkwater though ;-)
