Humor, a surprise ending, and an unlikely friendship makeBear and Chicken fallinto the ranks with Mo Willems and Dev Petty, and the soup recipe at the end will inspire young chefs to get into the kitchen and cook!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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super cute! Cute story and characters, but my favourite part is the recipe for soup that it comes with inn the back of the book! It just makes it so much more fun

Editorial Reviews

"When Bear says he's having chicken for lunch, what exactly does he mean? A sweet tale of expectations upended."--Kirkus Reviews
