Editorial Reviews

Review

"Cornell’s illustrations give life to the chicks and their individual personalities. Each one pursues his or her own agenda, though they are often united in a common cause. Like four small, fuzzy, yellow Don Quixotes, they see giants in windmills or, in this case, aliens in backyard grills." - New York Times

5.0 out of 5 stars Witty & Terrific Writing! Perfect 1st Chapter Book!
By Healthy FitMom on June 14, 2016
This is a creative book that has helped spark an interest in reading for my 4 year old. "The Chicken Squad" is well written and humorous for its intended audience; I would say ages 5+ would understand the humor; I had to explain it to my son. It is a great first chapter book: simple mystery, short chapters, 8 characters, and you can get through it in less than a week by reading a few chapters a day.
Bonus: it also teaches synonyms and more complex shapes.
The illustrations give life to the characters.
I would definitely recommend it for young readers and their parents!
