Fans of the first misadventure in the Chicken Squad series and The Trouble with Chickens will enjoy THE CASE OF THE WEIRD BLUE CHICKEN. Those reading aloud will love the opportunities for comic character voices and sound effects. Kevin Cornell's funny illustrations bring the characters to life. Many kids will have plenty of chances to outsmart the silly chickens as the mystery unfurls, and lots of ridiculous antics along the way keep things entertaining. But all this distraction can't disguise the slightness of the plot, and the resolution will have quite a few readers wondering, "That's it?"
