Into the Wild: Yet Another Misadventure (Chicken Squad Series #3) by Doreen Cronin, Stephen Gilpin
The Chicken Squad is back for their third (mis)adventure, this time facing off with whatever’s hiding in a mystery box in the backyard. A hilarious chapter book in what has been called “a lip-bitingly funny series” (School Library Journal) by the bestselling author of Click, Clack, Moo and Diary of a Worm.
Our fluffy, fearless young detectives are back. There’s a new cage in the yard, and the Chicken Squad is determined to figure out just who this is in it. Because whatever it is, it’s definitely up to no good. Equipped with the latest surveillance gear—which apparently includes copious amounts of marshmallows—the chicks venture into the wild to get answers. Let’s just hope they can beat that giant raincloud that’s closing in…because everyone knows that chickens can’t swim!

The next adventure of the chicks. This time we see them on a stake out. They are funny as they prepare for the stake out then do it. Their observations are wild. Sugar doesn't let the facts stand in the way of her theory. Dirt is more realistic and they all need to pay more attention to Sweetie. Again another fun romp with the chicks and Momma to straighten them out.
