Yes, this is what might technically categorized as a children’s book. But my reasons for reviewing it on this blog are many. First of all, I’m a second grade teacher so much of what I read falls into this category. Plus, the holiday gifting season is upon us and books do truly make the best gifts. And the best reason of all, it’s really a funny book! In fact, so funny in parts that I couldn’t get the next word out as I was reading it to my class.
So there are these chickens. Four of them, to be exact. And there’s the mama chick, Moosh. Oh and there’s J.J. the dog. He’s in charge of keeping the chickens safe. This first book sets the stage for future stories before diving headfirst into the mystery of “the big and scary thing” that Tail the squirrel finds in the yard. The chickens take it upon themselves to solve the mystery.
Without a doubt, it’s juvenile humor. But any humor is good. And I promise, any young person you read this story to or with will enjoy it. Plus, it’s the first in a series that will appeal to all kinds of readers. Enjoy!
