Publisher Comments:

Boys and girls will flock to Warren, a quirky chicken who wants to find his inner greatness.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Warren, a bespectacled chicken, is bored with the everyday chicken routine: peck, cluck, feed; peck, cluck, feed. Same old, same old. There must be more to life, no? And there must be more to Warren. He leaves the farm to discover what makes him specialand#8212;and with the help of an unhatched egg and a snarky, hungry rat, he just might get some answers.andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;Filled with simple text, speech balloons, and engaging illustrations, this easy-to-follow story is a blend between a picture book and a chapter book, making it an ideal bridge for independent readers.

Review:

"Warren, the self-important chicken of the title, doesn't realize that Millard the rat is flattering him because he's considering eating Warren for dinner. 'I think I might be a special chicken!' Warren confides. Millard gushes right back: 'It is possible you could even be... Chicken Supreme!' Fortunately, Warren spots Millard's cookbook, 1001 Recipes for Chicken, and when he discovers that Millard has plans for the rest of the flock, he gets to be the superhero he's always dreamed of being. Dillard (Perfectly Arugula) has a solid grasp of the possibilities of sequential art, drawing panels that break up physical processes like learning to fly (where Warren runs into some trouble) and following Warren as he trudges over a hill, ruminating about his failure to warn the flock. Warren's sidekick, an egg who eventually hatches, is the story's sweetest surprise: 'Is this farm the whole world or is there more?' the chick asks. 'Did you know that I'd be so yellow and fuzzy?' A good-humored story that nicely blends picture book, chapter book, and graphic novel elements. Ages 6 — 9. Agent: Lori Nowicki, Painted Words." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
