Booklist - 03/15/2021 The latest book in the Fox & Chick series features three stories designed for beginning readers but equally enjoyable for reading aloud. In the first chapter, Chick invites himself to a sleepover at Fox’s house, but only one of them actually sleeps. In the second chapter, Chick finds his hammer, loses it again, uses a rock to drive a nail into a wall, and hangs a picture of his hammer from the nail. Finally, an excited Chick talks Fox into throwing him a surprise birthday party, and then surprises Fox with an unwelcome revelation. In the pleasing and often amusing illustrations, Ruzzier uses the conventions of comics (visual narrative sequences, speech balloons) to motivate beginning readers with the dual reward of verbal and visual humor. Original storytelling with quirky, character-driven humor. - Copyright 2021 Booklist.
