Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Reynolds punctuates his wry, snappy text with the kind of knowing, running jokes that kids love, while Bogan's fiesta-bright comic watercolors evoke the spirit of vintage Warner Bros. animation (astute readers will also note that the barnyard mice seem to be the suppliers of the harder-to-find ingredients)." ---Publishers Weekly

"Bogan's big cartoon scenes capture the increasing excitement, as well as the general bliss brought on by plenty of pre-fiesta snacking." --Kirkus Reviews

"This story is a fun read, with a refrain and a smooth pattern. Bogan's humorous illustrations keep the action moving, and the pages are filled with saturated color and energy. A definite purchase for any library." --School Library Journal

    Have You Ever Heard Of Chickens at a Fiesta???

    Chicks and Salsa is one of my favorite books (and also one of my kids favorite books!) Ola! This book is one of a kind, with chickens eating Mexican food, throwing fiestas in the barnyard @ Nuthatcher Farm and getting all the barnyard animals involved in the preparation of Southwestern delicacies. That is, until some of the ingredients come up missing; and the rooster decides it's time to take up French cooking lessons! Read this great, entertaining, fun for the whole family book to learn about Chicks and Salsa!
