June 12, 2019: Chicken Squad: the First Misadventure by Doreen Cronin

Dirt, Sweetie, Poppy, and Sugar might be chicks, but they sure aren’t chicken. They’re the Chicken Squad, and it’s up to them to figure out what Tail, the not-so-brave squirrel, is so afraid of. When he describes it as BIG and Scary, that doesn’t give much insight as to what is lurking beyond the coop. Can our feckless, fluffy heroes defeat something that could very well be — gulp — from out of this world?
