About The Book:
Title: HIDE & GO BEAK (The Great Mathemachicken 1)
Author: Nancy Krulik, Charlie Adler (Illustrator)
Pub. Date: January 18, 2022
Formats: Hardcover, eBook
A new young chapter book series about a chicken who loves math, science, and learning new things–by New York Times bestselling author Nancy Krulik for fans of Unlimited Squirrel and Bumble and Bee.
Chirpy is a young chicken stuck in the family coop. But she’s not like the other chickens who just sit around peck peck pecking all day. She’s intrigued by the children who come home from a place called school. They always look so happy! (Well, most days.)
So Chirpy sneaks onto the bus one morning, hides in the classroom . . . and discovers a true love of math. When she shares what she’s learned with the other chickens, they think she’s one kernel short of a cob.
Even so, Chirpy is determined to find a formula for fowl success by pecking away. But when a hungry fox tries to attack the coop, can she find the equation for a simple solution?
With lively two-color art throughout and a fun hands-on simple machine activity, this eggs-ellent hilarious young chapter book series starter is a Grade-A pick for emerging readers to get them eggs-ited about science and math.
“This STEM series debut for newly independent readers provides a light but engaging look at simple machines.”—School Library Journal
“A smart, sprightly chapter book series starter. . . . Short, dialogue-driven paragraphs by Krulik (the Princess Pulverizer series) are peppered with ‘eggs-tra’ humor and chicken wordplay . . . while Alder’s (Doggo and Pupper) cartoon spot illustrations, rendered in tones of yellow, gray, and black, provide plenty of visual characterization”—Publishers Weekly
Chirpy the chick loves numbers, sneaks away to ride the school bus, and proceeds to sneak into the classroom of Mrs. Zoober where she learns about gravity and how to use it. Chirpy discovers that her sibling, Clucky, may have been kidnapped by a fox which leads to a whole adventure filled with Chirpy using her math and science skills to the rescue. It is such a fun read and should help kids want to learn the same things as Chirpy does and put them to use. The illustrations are perfect to pull the reader through the pages. Each page is filled with chicken humor and STEM knowledge and will have even the most reluctant reader begging for more of this series.
