Why did the chicken cross the road? Perhaps to audition for a role in a new series from author-illustrator Tom Angleberger, creator of the bestselling Origami Yoda books and many others. In September, Walker Books US will launch—with a 150,000-copy first printing—Two-Headed Chicken, the first graphic novel Angleberger has both written and illustrated.

The story follows the titular fowl who flies the coop, making a heroic escape to avoid death by frying at the hooves of Kernel Antlers (a moose). This maiden flight serves as the kick-off to a series that features wacky humor, a sci-fi vibe, and, in Angleberger style, the breaking of the fourth wall, as readers can join in the two-headed chicken’s adventures traveling across the universe. ---from Publisher's Weekly

Other reviews:

"You can not go wrong with a book that has a chicken in it. This book has a two-headed chicken, so it is better. The only thing that could possibly improve such a book would be if it had a moose. This one has a moose. There is other stuff too, but I am not going to tell you the whole thing." -Daniel Pinkwater
