Why did the chicken cross the road?

The machinations of poultry are difficult to decipher. Add an infuriating youth pastor, a terrifying crash at highway speeds, and trap-building kids too bored for their own good and you have something a little more serious than a knock-knock joke.

After the local librarian foolishly agrees to haul a trailer full of chickens over the pass, an unexpected crash sends fifteen beloved hens scattering into the wilderness. Shelby and the exasperating Jack must locate, capture, and return the chickens to his nephew before the talent show at the boy's new school on Monday. The problem: chickens are incredibly difficult to catch. Especially when dispersed throughout the wild. When they take refuge in a coop occupied by twenty identical hens and guarded by multiple NO TRESPASSING signs and a pair of bored mountain children who have been watching way too much TV, tensions rise and feathers fly. Can Shelby thwart an alarming collection of unlikely traps and find the chickens before they are devoured? Imagination and ingenuity go so very wrong in this epic clash of inventive child verses accidental chicken thief.

About the Author

Kristen Joy Wilks has carried a frog in her pocket, captained dubious watercraft made from old boards, and directed her horse through a herd of 200 elk against all good sense. Due to a brilliant scheme with her cousins, she has even been suspended by her feet over a homemade pit filled with gardener snakes. Despite this experience, she returns to the mountains again and again. Kristen is now married to a camp director and has three mountain boys of her own who make life lively with captured snakes, pet chickens, and their large and slobbery Newfoundland dog. She writes about what she loves: the quiet of the forest, the freedom of a mountain wind tangling your hair, the ill-considered schemes of unstoppable children, and the love and loyalty of animal friends who will never leave your side … as long as you bring snacks. Kristen can be found at or in an overstuffed chair at 4:00 AM writing a wide variety of implausible tales.
