Description

Delightfully quirky chicken Warren and his sidekick Egg embark on dual adventures when Egg decides to cross the road in this follow-up to Extraordinary Warren, which Publishers Weekly called "a good-humored story that nicely blends picture book, chapter book, and graphic novel elements."

Warren, the bespectacled hero of Extraordinary Warren, is delighted to have a sidekick and feathered friend in the newly hatched Egg. But Egg is rather exasperating. New to the world, he asks so many questions and has so much to learn. Early one morning Egg takes off on his own and crosses the road, where he winds up getting lost in a field of corn. Warren is so busy imagining his flight to the moon that he doesn't even know Egg is missing But when Warren finally realizes Egg has flown the coop, nothing stops him from locating his best buddy--not even that hungry rat, Millard.

Filled with simple text, speech balloons, and engaging illustrations, this easy-to-follow story is a blend between a picture book and a chapter book, making it an ideal bridge for independent readers.
