Poultrygeist by Eric Geron
From a debut picture-book author and a #1 New York Times best-selling illustrator, a wry take on Why did the chicken cross the road? that gives a whole new meaning to the Other Side. Cock-a-doodle-BOO!
It's punny. It's spooky. It's a meta picture book that puts a fresh spin on an old joke and elevates chicken comedy to ghastly new levels. A little spring chicken crosses the road but quickly gets flattened under a lorry. The barnyard beasts who've gone before break the news: now that Chicken's fried - dispatched to the Other Side - Chicken has a job, an unwanted job, as a noisy trouble-making ghost. This fowl may be weak in the beak, but Chicken knows that scaring people isn't nice. There is such a thing as a friendly ghost, after all - isn't there? Loaded with laughs and shivers, this Halloween-ready treat features ghoulishly funny art by the illustrator of the #1 New York Times best-selling Bad Seed series. Let the haunting begin!
