Gimme Cracked Corn and I Will Share

By: Kevin Oâ??Malley

One night, Chicken dreams of a treasure trove of cracked corn-"all the corn that any chicken could ever want"-hidden under a pig in a faraway barn. Chicken decides to follow his dream, recruiting his wisecracking friend George for the trip. Along the way, they cross a road, encounter a basketball game where someone calls "foul," and have to "duck" when a hawk attacks them. But is Chicken's dream really "all it's cracked up to be"? Full-color pen-and-ink and digital illustrations.
