The Chicken Squad by Doreen Cronin
Those cute chicks from the author's JJ Tully Mystery series.
And now they're solving their own crimes.
Dirt, Sugar, Poppy, and Sweetie try to help a frightened squirrel in their first "solo" adventure. Which just might get a little off-track.
Hilarity ensues, and JJ Tully comes out of retirement to help save the day.
This is the perfect beginning chapter book for young readers. Perfect for grades 1st-3rd.
I can't wait for the next book!
