Chickenhare has a best friend, a turtle named Abe. They have the distinct misfortune as the tale begins of being caught by a hunter named Mr. Barley, who sells them to a rather mean taxidermist, Mr. Klaus. Klaus has two more animals held captive and waiting to go under his knife: the bossy Meg and the argumentative Banjo. It's unclear what kind of animal Meg is, but Banjo looks like a monkey. Except he's really a krampus. Whatever that is.
The quartet manages to escape from Klaus's cages, but the taxidermist wants his animals back, and he's going to chase them across the frozen countryside. Meanwhile, Chickenhare is seeing visions of a ghostly goat who needs his help. And on top of it all, the vicious shromph are out and about and spelling danger.
It's all not only hilarious, but it's great fun, as well. Writer/artist Chris Grine is adept at telling a kids' story with the requisite thrills and adventures, and he's doesn't bog the story down by explaining all the whys and hows of this wonderful little world he's created. Instead, he propels the highly enjoyable storyline forward at top speed and lets his readers simply revel in the fun. Plus, his artwork is delightful.
The banter between all the characters, particularly Meg and Banjo, is a hoot, too. It's age-appropriate, but it doesn't talk down to young readers.
You'll love this tale, whether you're a kid or not. And it's wonderful to see it come to life in color.

This is a must have book to add to your home library, to give as a gift, or an easy way to encourage children to love reading. I know you will enjoy this book as much as I did.
My 41 year old thoughts: This was an odd book that I think would probably appeal more to boys than girls. If this book were a movie it would definitely be a PG to PG-13 rating for violence and cannibalism. Aaack! The pictures were well done and the story had some interesting moments in it. There is also a cliff hanger at the end to keep kids looking out for book two in the series. This is most likely one of those books your child will either love or hate.
Scholastic Books sent me the above book for review purposes. It will allow me to keep the book. I have no other connection to and have received no other compensation from Scholastic.
Disclosure: This ebook was provided to me free of charge through NetGalley for the sole purpose of an honest review. All thoughts, comments, and ratings are my own.
