Chickenhare: half chicken, half rabbit, 100% hero!

What's a chickenhare? A cross between a chicken and a rabbit, of course. And that makes Chickenhare the rarest animal around! So when he and his turtle friend Abe are captured and sold to the evil taxidermist Klaus, they've got to find a way to escape before Klaus turns them into stuffed animals. With the help of two other strange creatures, Banjo and Meg, they might even get away. But with Klaus and his thugs hot on their trail, the adventure is only just beginning for this unlikely quartet of friends.

CHRIS GRINE is an artist and writer for Hallmark where he creates humorous greeting cards. Chickenhare was nominated for an Eisner Award for best publication for a younger audience in 2007. Chris lives in Kansas City, Missouri with his wife and their 4-year-old daughter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great new graphic novel series for middle school kids Jake's Review: This was an awesome book with lots of easy to read words. The illustrations are fantastic and it was really funny. This would be a really good book for both kids who don't like to read and for people who do. Both boys and girls of my age (11) would like it too. There are a lot of weird and funny animals and ugly bad guys.. Lots of good battles and ghost sheep. My favorite characters are meat and patty. I cannot wait to read more of this series & can you make it snappy mom wants me to read this other book and I really don't want to Jake's Rating: 10/10 Mom's Review: This will be a huge hit with fans of the series Bone as it has the similar type of humour. The illustrations are unusual and creative and the characters are likeable. The storyline is fast paced and will keep even the most reluctant reader entranced. Nice message of friendship and teamwork, done in a non obvious way. Cannot wait to show this to the middle school customers at the Chapters I work at who are looking for a new graphic novel. Well done Mr Grine for coming up with something unique! Mom's Rating: 7/10 We received this from Scholastic in exchange for an honest review

Editorial Reviews

Praise for ChickenhareA 2007 Eisner Award Nominee"Fun, witty characters and sharp drawings bring Chickenhare to life, but something dark lurks just beneath the surface. A mysterious and whimsical adventure that quickly leads us down the rabbit hole . . ." -Jeff Smith, creator of BONE"I loved Chickenhare. Chris Grine has a delightfully deranged imagination, and he knows how to tell one heck of a good story." -Stan Saki, creator of Usagi Yojimbo"Witty comebacks, fast pacing, and a demented taxidermist - Grine's debut has it all." -Publishers Weekly"An imaginative, outlandish and rollicking adventure . . . a pleasingly odd world readers can easily slide into and explore." -Kirkus
