Details: Product Description With whimsical illustrations by Paulette Bogan, Aaron Reynolds has created a hilarious picture book about one rooster's quest for culinary delight. What happens at Nuthatcher Farm when the chickens get tired of the same old chicken feed? The rooster hatches a plan, of course! With a pinch of genius, a dash of resourcefulness, and a little pilfering from the farmer's garden, the chickens whip up a scrumptious snack of chips and salsa. When the rest of the barnyard gets a whiff of the spicy smells and want to join in, it can mean only one thing . . . FIESTA! But when the big day arrives, all their spicy southwestern supplies are gone! It seems that Mr. and Mrs. Nuthatcher have caught on to the flavor craze as well, and the only thing left for the animals to do is to try a new culinary style-ooh la la! Review “Reynolds punctuates his wry, snappy text with the kind of knowing, running jokes that kids love, while Bogan's fiesta-bright comic watercolors evoke the spirit of vintage Warner Bros. animation (astute readers will also note that the barnyard mice seem to be the suppliers of the harder-to-find ingredients).” ―Publishers Weekly “Bogan's big cartoon scenes capture the increasing excitement, as well as the general bliss brought on by plenty of pre-fiesta snacking.” ―Kirkus Reviews “This story is a fun read, with a refrain and a smooth pattern. Bogan's humorous illustrations keep the action moving, and the pages are filled with saturated color and energy. A definite purchase for any library.” ―School Library Journal About the Author Aaron Reynolds is the author of several highly-acclaimed picture books, including President Squid, Nerdy Birdy, Creepy Carrots!, Carnivores, and Joey Fly, Private Eye. After graduating with a degree in theater from Illinois Wesleyan University, he held many interesting and exciting jobs, including actor, businessman, waiter, dancer, carpenter, and chef, before becoming a writer. He's never been a farmer or a rooster, but he's thinking of trying one of those next. He lives near Chicago, where his wife and two kids keep life spicy. Paulette Bogan is the author and illustrator of many wonderful books for children, including Goodnight Lulu, a Children's Book-of-the-Month Club Main Selection; Momma's Magical Purse; and the books about the lovable pooch, Spike. She lives with her family in New York City.
