Rody is in charge of the chicken coop on the kibbutz where he lives in Israel's Jezreel Valley. He loves his job so much and makes the work seem so delightful that everyone wants a chance to tend the brood. When they do, Rody is transferred elsewhere. But as Rody moves from job to job, the kibbutz learns it's not what you do, but how you do it that makes a difference.

Chicken Man is the winner of the 1992 National Jewish Book Award, with delightful illustrations by author Michelle Edwards. The book offers a glimpse into the real life of Israel's kibbutzniks, and this reissued edition includes an updated afterward by the author, discussing modern changes in kibbutz life.
