The Case of the Weird Blue Chicken: 05/05/22
The Case of the Weird Blue Chicken by Doreen Cronin and Kevin Cornell (Illustrations) is the second of the Chicken Squad books. This time the chickens have a client who wants them to find his missing house.
The first bit of fun is figuring out who the "weird blue chicken" is. For most American readers, the bird will be a familiar one. For west coast readers, it won't be. Our weird blue chickens are scrubbier.
The second fun bit is figuring out where the missing birdhouse is and gasp! where the missing chicken sibling has gone. Book two doesn't rely as heavily on reader knowledge to solve the mystery. This time the reader is brought along as the Chicken Squad does some actual recognizance.
The third book is Into the Wild (2016).
