Chicks Run Wild

Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen (2011), 32 pages
Illustrated by Ward Jenkins
Audience: Preschool - Preschool
Category: Animal, Fiction, Picture Books

This fun, rhyming tale of chicks who just can't settle down for bed (they 'run wild' every time Mama leaves) is full of action and rhythm. Great for reading aloud, listeners will love it when Mama joins in the fun. 'In a squall of fluffy feathers, all the fowl sashay together. Mama shows them how to prance and how to do the chicken dance.' Mama's trick works, and the chicks are finally so sleepy that they have no choice but to say goodnight.

At their home in the Everglades, Wahoo Cray helps his father, Mickey, to care for the many wild animals his father has collected over the years, such as Alice, an alligator that he raised from infancy, a boa constrictor, an orphaned bobcat and a howler monkey named Jocko. Mickey Cray needs more help since an iguana fell from a tree onto his head, giving him a concussion which has led to migraines and double-vision and leaving Mickey unable to perform his work as an animal wrangler for documentaries and reality shows. As soon as Wahoo's mother leaves for China to teach Chinese to American executives to earn money to pay the mortgage, Mickey is contacted by a reality television show, Expedition Survival! to provide animals for an episode to take place in the Everglades. Wahoo soon realizes that the show's star, Derek Badger, is a fake, but that turns out to be the least of their troubles. When Mickey and Wahoo travel to the Everglades to help film part of the episode in the wild, they pick up a girl from Wahoo's class, Tuna Gordon, who is running from her drunk, abusive father. All of these people stumbling around in the Everglades' marshes make a hectic and surprising adventure.
