About the book

Erica S. Perl and Henry Cole team up once again to deliver spot-on humor with their unforgettable chicken character. 

In this cheeky (sorry!) sequel to the wildly fun Chicken Butt!, the young jokester and his chicken muse are back, but this time they're trying to trick Mom. She thinks she has caught on to the gag, but as she distractedly does the grocery shopping, she falls victim to a flurry of jokes using homonyms and homophones—words such as "dear" and "deer," and "which" and "witch." Wordplay has never been so much fun. 

Like Chicken Butt!, this story encourages children to participate in a call-and-response reading format that reinforces their reading skills.

Praise for Chicken Butt's Back!
"Coles’ tickled-pink cartoonish artwork gets right into the mix, the chocolate chip to the cookie dough. The denouement is so merrily explosive that just to imagine the shrieking voices of a read-aloud is mightily cheering.” –Kirkus Reviews 

“Cole's kinetic, acrylic and colored pencil cartoons strike the right tone of mild disobedience.” 
Publishers Weekly 

“Fans of Chicken Butt! are going to love this sequel. This is the kind of book that siblings will beg to read to each other, especially since it’s set up for two voices.” –School Library Journal
