Cronin, Doreen Into the Wild, 94 pgs. Illustrated by Stephen Gilpin Atheneum Books, 2016. $12.99 CHAPTER BOOK Content: G.
Four chicken siblings are suspicious of a new box in their backyard. After they run surveillance they get stuck in a storm and have to hide out in the new box. They meet the new bunny who is housed in the box and then their mom comes for them, gives them a wash and hangs them on the laundry line.
The illustrations in this book are adorable. Even though they are done in black and white, the chickens have great facial expressions. The story line is predictable and the chickens get side tracked often, making for long dialogue that is hard to follow. This is one of three books in the chicken squad series.
