Gimme Shelter: Misadventures and Misinformation: 08/01/22
Gimme Shelter: Misadventures and Misinformation by Doreen Cronin and Stephen Gilpin (Illustrations) (2017) is the fifth book in the Chicken Squad series. Sugar has started digging a hole and everyone else wants to know why.
Sugar initially explains that she's digging a storm shelter but through the usual oddball logic of the other chicks the purpose of the hole takes on many new meanings. In the process of digging and arguing they dig up some interesting things which might or might not be a T-rex bone and a unicorn horn.
While the archeology ended up being the most interesting side plot for me, it's forgotten until the epilog. The big question is why was Sugar digging and would it serve as a storm shelter should a storm arise?
The sixth and final book of the original series is Bear Country (2018).
