Official Summary: Cranky Chicken is, well, cranky. With one cranky eyebrow, cranky eyes, and even cranky, scratchy feet. But then one day, Cranky meets a very friendly worm named Speedy who wants nothing more than to be friends. Young readers will love seeing the mismatched friendship grow over the course of three charming and laugh-out-loud short adventures as Chicken and Speedy become BFFs (Best Feathered Friends) and Speedy shows Chicken how to look on the bright side.

Review: Cranky Chicken was such a cute read. I would recommend it for early readers, though it would make a nice read-aloud book too. Cranky Chicken is just that…a cranky chicken. He meets a really kind – and fast –  worm named Speedy who decides that the two of them should be friends.

I really loved that Speedy looked past Chicken’s crankiness. That’s not all that makes up Chicken, and it makes a good message for kids about not judging others and being friends with people different than you.

If you have some younger readers in your life, Cranky Chicken would make a nice holiday gift this year! I’m a huge fan of buying kid’s books whenever you can. I like that Cranky Chicken is kind of a mix between a graphic novel and a picture book, which is a plus for slower and/or reluctant readers!
