Booklist - 02/15/2021 The chicks first introduced in Chicks Rule! (2019) put their talents to good use in this upbeat companion title. Rocker Chick is filled with excitement when she is invited to be the headliner for a “Big Wing-Ding.” She gathers her guitar and song books and heads out to dress rehearsal. Unfortunately, when she sees the enormous venue, Rocker Chick is struck with a powerful case of stage fright, shouting “I’m too chicken!” when it’s her time to sing. No need to fear! Her friends flock to her aid, using their talents to help her get ready and restore her confidence. Pop Chick teaches her dance moves, Artsy Chick does her makeup, and Zen Chick helps her with the stress. When the time comes for Rocker Chick to perform, she spots her friends and rocks her heart out for the cheering crowd. The saturated, cartoon illustrations are wonderfully cute and encompass a range of individual talents and styles. Panel art moves this story of friendship and teamwork along quickly for a lighthearted yet relatable read. - Copyright 2021 Booklist.
