School Library Journal - 06/01/2017 Gr 1–3—In this latest zany adventure in the UK-imported "Agatha Parrot" series, Agatha and her friends are taking care of the school's newly hatched chicks overnight. Four friends and 13 chicks mean that they all take home three and one gets the bonus chick, named Random. After school, the girls meet up for a chick soccer match and realize that one of the chicks is missing. High jinks ensue as the girls try to figure out who lost Random and work to find him before the big chicken assembly at school the next day. The fast-paced, high-energy story is enhanced by black-and-white cartoonlike illustrations. VERDICT A hit for fans of Sara Pennypacker's "Clementine" and Annie Barrows's "Ivy and Bean" books.—Sarah Polace, Cuyahoga Public Library System, OH - Copyright 2017 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
