The case of the weird blue chicken by Doreen Cronin illustrated by Kevin Cornell

This is the second madcap adventure by the Chicken Squad and I must confess I missed the first (yes it is in our school library) but it did not seem to matter I quickly fell into the workings of the squad and their riotous exploits.

The squad consists of four odd ball chicks named :


You lost it.
We'll find it.
You broke it?
We'll fix it.
In trouble?
We'll get you out.
Looking for trouble?
We'll bring it to you.

A tiny blue bird shows up at the chicken coop with a problem.  Someone has kidnapped her house. This is the perfect case for our squad.  You can read more about this adventure when you click the Kirkus link below :

Please take a minute to listen to this little audio sample - it is perfect!  This book might work well as readers theatre or adapted as a play with your class.  If you have not read any other books by Doreen Cronin look in our library.  I love reading Vote for Duck each year to our grade six students when they are talking about government.  This same book is called Duck for President in the US.

My students love these. They are far more popular than the two original mystery books that they were in before the spinoffs.
