Silly, colorful graphic novel doesn't pull together a plot.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The bright, silly illustrations try to rescue a flat story that has both too many details and not enough to pull readers in. Two-Headed Chicken tries to be funny, whimsical, and action-packed but loses steam in the middle of the book and the story never comes together. The different places the chicken lands would be fun to explore at least a little more, and adding that detail would make the pace a little less frenetic. The quizzes for readers in the last half of the book have some fun questions.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
