A Super Bowl-sized game day treat!
The animals of Nuthatcher Farm are gathering to watch the big football game on TV and Rooster knows the perfect game time snack: buffalo wings! But when he misreads the recipe, Rooster heads west in search of REAL buffalo wings. After finding many wing-less buffalo, Rooster decides to bring home new friends and new recipes instead. This delicious road trip is a read-aloud favorite. “This latest culinary misadventure will likewise provoke equal quantities of laughter and saliva, even in non-football fans.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Youngsters will enjoy this funny follow-up to Chicks and Salsa . . . a robust romp, generously spiced with child appeal.” —School Library Journal
On the day of the big game at Nuthatcher Farm, Rooster is sure that buffalo wings would be the perfect snack for the football-watching frenzy. But Rooster doesn't quite follow the directions, and before you can say "touchdown!" he is heading west in search of a certain missing ingredient. Rooster's quest is full of surprises, unexpected adventures, and of course, the perfect ending to his road-trip saga--the ultimate snack for his football fiesta.
This mouthwatering follow-up to the read-aloud favorite Chicks and Salsa is told with flavor and flair by Aaron Reynolds, while Paulette Bogan's scrumptious illustrations will make tummies of all ages grumble for more.
