Chicken in Mittens
First sentence: Zoey stepped out of the barn. So did her best pig, Sam. Fresh snow covered the farm. "We can be explorers!" said Zoey. "It's cold," said Sam. "Arctic explorers!" said Zoey.
Premise/plot: Zoey LOVES adventures. Sam, well, he's a great friend, a sidekick, to Zoey. Even if he doesn't always show the same passion or zeal for adventure as his friend does. In this one, the two set off to discover the pole. Will they find it? Well, they'll find something that's for sure!
My thoughts: This I Can Read early reader stars the characters from Chicken in Space and Chicken in School. If you loved those picture books, you should definitely seek out Chicken in Mittens.
It's an amusing book. Not all early readers can be described as amusing or delightful.
