Summary: This is a graphic novel about a two-headed chicken being chased through the multiverse by a fried chicken-loving moose. Each time it/they is/are about to be eaten, the chicken(s) use its/their Astrohat to escape to another universe. Along the way, there are quizzes, the world’s longest knock-knock joke, and a fish who wants to talk to you about your feelings. Just when you feel like you can’t handle another universe, you are suddenly in the book, telling the chicken(s) to hurry up and defeat the moose already. Which they do. Using the world’s longest knock-knock joke. 208 pages; grades 2-5.
Pros: It’s funny, it’s ridiculous, it’s annoying in a good way, and kids will love it.
Cons: Sadly, I didn’t have jury duty, so I couldn’t run the experiment I tried with Tom Angleberger’s The Rat With the Human Face.
