Overview

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Gwynne Spencer
Like its companion book, Chicks and Salsa, this barnyard send-up is a snacker's delight. It invites kids to laugh out loud at the story and cook up some stories of their own to go with favorite snacks as a creative writing exercise. In this one, everybody at Nuthatcher Farm is gathering to watch football and eat themselves silly. The ducks are bringing quackamole. The pigs are bringing nachos. Rooster wants to bring buffalo wings and sets out to get some—from the buffalo. But then he rereads his recipe and finds that in addition to garlic, vinegar, ketchup, and hot sauce the vital missing ingredient is derived from body parts of his close relatives! He slinks back to the wide-screen TV and shares chuck-wagon chili, pizza with pineapple, onion rings, and jalapeno hush puppies with his friends. The endpaper has a recipe for buffalo-free buffalo wings (which do contain chicken wings however) that will encourage all readers to start cooking up reading. The inside front cover has a recipe for Halftime Jalapeno Hush Puppies that pack a punch too. For more ideas, go to www.cookingupreading.com where you will find 500+ recipes that go with your favorite picture books. Reviewer: Gwynne Spencer
Children's Literature
In the barnyard, the animals prepare to watch the big football game on TV. Some snacks are ready, but rooster is hankering for one with “plenty of kick.” Skimming the recipe for buffalo wings while making the sauce, he realizes that he needs to find a buffalo. Heading west, he finds no buffalo wherever he stops. On the way home, he finally spots a herd of buffalo, but there is not a wing among them. Re-reading the recipe, he realizes it is chicken wings he needs! Meanwhile, the buffalo invite him to join their game-watching party, where he particularly enjoys their jalapeno hush puppies. He takes both buffalo and hush puppies back with him for the climactic, first-ever Nuthatcher Farm football game, with delicious snacks galore. The zany text is peppered with word play and food fascination. Bogan creates rather gross watercolor images of her anthropomorphic cast; her audacious imagination gives us a testosterone-filled rooster and overwhelmingly intense buffalo. Double pages overflow with action. A mouse with sunglasses, not in the text, adds to the slapstick humor. Recipes for the wings and hush puppies appear on the endpages, as does the disclaimer: “No chickens, buffalo, or puppies were harmed in the making of this book.” Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz

Youngsters will enjoy this funny follow-up to Chicks and Salsa (Bloomsbury, 2005). The animals on Nuthatcher Farm are getting set to watch the big football game: "The ducks dished up their famous quackamole. The pigs piled a platter knee-keep with nachos. And the horses heisted Farmer Nuthatcher's TV." But that isn't enough for the rooster, who has "a hankering for a game-time snack with plenty of kick" and finds a recipe for buffalo wings. Off-beat humor pulls this zany story along as the rooster heads west in search of the missing ingredient, finds a herd of buffalo only to ascertain that it is "completely wing-free," and discovers, to his horror, that what he really needs are chicken wings. The resolution is silly but satisfying. The illustrations are bold, colorful, and hilarious, featuring animated expressions and amusing situations. The spreads are peppered with humorous visual details. Recipes for Halftime Jalapeño Hush Puppies and Buffalo-Free Buffalo Wings are appended along with the disclaimer: "No chickens, buffalo, or puppies were harmed in the making of this book." A robust romp, generously spiced with child appeal.

Kirkus Reviews
Reading his recipe a little too quickly, the cock-of-the-kitchen introduced in Chicks and Salsa (2005) sets out just before the start of the Big Game to fetch what he thinks are the main ingredients in the perennial football snack. Unsurprisingly, buffalo-particularly the winged sort-turn out to be hard to find. Bogan's cartoon illustrations reinforce the hilarity of Rooster's quest as, after futile stops at such venues as Buffalo Bob's Wild West Rodeo, he does at last come upon a herd of earthbound buffalo and, confused, rereads his recipe. Uh-oh . . . chicken wings?!? Fortunately, the buffalo themselves are just settling down to watch the game on a big-screen TV, and their basket of delicious jalape-o hush puppies give Rooster a perfect alternative to take back to the farmyard. Closing with a pair of recipes (one of which, unfortunately, is partially hidden by the jacket flap), this latest culinary misadventure will likewise provoke equal quantities of laughter and saliva, even in non-football fans.
