Bear and Chicken

By Jannie Ho

  • Hardback
  • £10.99

Humor, sincerity, and a surprise twist ending make Bear and Chicken fall into ranks with Mo Willems and Dev Petty, and the vegetable soup recipe at the end is sure to inspire young chefs to get busy in the kitchen.

When Bear finds a chicken frozen in the winter snow, he brings it home to try to defrost it. As Chicken thaws--um, awakens--he fears that Bear is actually prepping to eat him. Oh no! All signs are pointing to a fateful end for Chicken--being wrapped like a burrito, chopped basil and veggies sitting on the counter, the huge pot on the stove that's just the right size for a chicken to fit inside.

It's almost time for lunch, so Chicken makes a run for it! But in the end, Chicken learns that perhaps he too quickly jumped to conclusions. This funny and clever friendship tale teaches kids that things are not always as they seem, while learning a thing or two about making soup with a friend!
