The Case of the Weird Blue Chicken

Cover: 'The Case of the Weird Blue Chicken'

Staff Review: "The Case of the Weird Blue Chicken" by Doreen Cronin


The Chicken Squad is a group of four hilarious chicks who are out to solve crime. When a blue jay, the weird blue chicken, flies in saying his house has been kidnapped, the Chicken Squad embarks on a journey to figure out who took the birdhouse and why. Filled with funny characters and an entertaining plot, this book is a great beginning chapter book for early readers. The illustrations by Kevin Cornell add to the story and Doreen Cronin brings the funny humor and crazy characters also found in her Caldecott Honor Book, "Click Clack Moo: Cows that Type".

Audience: children | Genre: fiction, board book, humor
