Bear Country: 09/02/22
Bear Country by Doreen Cronin and Stephen Gilpin (Illustrations) (2018) is the last of the original set of Chicken Squad books. Ziggy the hamster alerts them to the fact that their Barbara and J.J. are missing. Worse yet, there's been sightings of a headless bear in the area!
This volume pulls together a lot of the previous ones. Some of the mystery is pulled from the chickens' unique perspective and misinterpretation of the world. But there's also some genuine missing persons detecting done. Finally there are sound clues that to a human reader might lead to a quicker understanding of the situation than it does for the Chicken Squad.
Of the six, this one is probably my favorite. I wish the longer chapter books were on going. Now, though, there are two ready to read level two books. The first of these is The Chicken House (2021).
