Chico the Brave by Dave Horowitz

Chico is afraid of everything.  In an effort to make Chico feel better and more confident, Dad tells Chico the story of the Golden Chicken, a superbird.  Chico decides he must go look for the Golden Chicken to ask him what makes him so brave.  Chico packs a lunch and heads for the mountain.  Along the way he finds himself surrounded by llamas, the dreaded Llama Llama Gang.  The llamas are amused by Chico's story about the Golden Chicken.  Chico continues to search for the Golden Chicken when a mighty wind blows Chico off the mountain top.   As the wind sends Chico through the air the other chickens and the llamas see him flying and leaves them wondering if they just saw the Golden Chicken! I love this book, as I do Horowitz's book Humpty Climbs Again. Great picture book for older elementary kids.
