A whimsical and unexpected adventure tale, Chicken of the Sea originated in the five-year-old mind of Ellison Nguyen, son of Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Viet Thanh Nguyen; father and son committed the story to the page, then enlisted the artistic talents of Caldecott Honor winner Thi Bui and her thirteen-year-old son, Hien Bui-Stafford, to illustrate it. This unique collaboration between two generations of artists and storytellers invites you aboard for adventure, even if you're chicken. Maybe especially if you're chicken.

Viet Thanh Nguyen is a butler, the Alfred to Ellison’s Batman. When he is not butlering, Viet teaches, writes books, gives lectures around the country, and dreams that he might one day draw as well as Ellison. He lives in Los Angeles and is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Sympathizer.
Hien Bui-Stafford is now a teenager who enjoys sleeping. When he is awake, he reads, draws, plays games, and entertains his younger cousins.
Thi Bui plays a cartoonist on the interwebs and spends her days wheeling a suitcase around the world, talking to people. When she is home, she takes her son out to ramen and they draw together. She lives in Berkeley, California and is the author of the Caldecott-winning A Different Pond, as well as the American Book Award-winning The Best We Could Do.
