Author/Illustrator Chris Grine began the tales of Chickenhare as a black & white book in 2005. Chickenhare and his friend Abe, a turtle with a prominent beard, attempt to escape from the evil taxidermist Klaus.
I read book two without having book one and loved it. The story contains mystery, adventure and suspense along with a monkey, demons and an angry goat.
The books have been picked up by Scholastic and will be released in full color in new editions in February.
These are a fun, quick read and they are unique enough to keep adults interested while still being simple enough for kids to follow and enjoy.
