Staff Reviews


Everything makes Chicken cranky, the sun, the sky, surprises, dirt, mismatched socks, cupcakes without sprinkles, the list goes on! But what happens when an optimistic worm comes into Chicken’s life? The friendship of a lifetime.

This hilarious early graphic novel is perfect for those days when you wake up on the wrong side of the bed!--Donna

Description


Narwhal and Jelly meet The Bad Guys in this heartwarming, brightly illustrated, and downright hilarious chapter book about what happens when a very cranky chicken is befriended by a very cheerful worm.

Cranky Chicken is, well, cranky. With one cranky eyebrow, cranky eyes, and even cranky, scratchy feet. But then one day, Cranky meets a very friendly worm named Speedy who wants nothing more than to be friends. Young readers will love seeing the mismatched friendship grow over the course of three charming and laugh-out-loud short adventures as Chicken and Speedy become BFFs (Best Feathered Friends) and Speedy shows Chicken how to look on the bright side.

Praise For…


"Sweet, wholesome fun with plenty of chicken puns and wormy weirdness."
— BCCB

"In pale jewel tones, Battersby’s simple panels feel breezy and contemporary; the comic companionship she develops between two complete opposites couldn’t be more endearing."
— Publishers Weekly

"Delightful, simply illustrated panels are packed with expressive motion and silliness...Will make even the crankiest reader feel that thing that’s not cranky. (Happy!)"
— Kirkus Reviews
