“Chickenhare” is an all aged, vibrantly flavored graphic novel with a a uniquely playful cast of characters who can't seem to stay out of trouble. Chickehare is exactly what it sounds like , a part chicken, part hare, making him the rarest animal ever to be found. Barley has taken Chickenhare and Abe, the turtle, and is going to sell them to a a crazy man who likes to stuff animals, dress them up and place them in cabinets. While sitting in his cage, he meets Banjo and Meg and together they come up with a pan to escape. Of course once they escape it becomes a race to not be caught. Can Chickehare and his friends make it to safety before getting hurt or snatched up again? This is a must have book to add to your home library, to give as a gift, or an easy way to encourage children to love reading. I know you will enjoy this book as much as I did.
