Chick and Chickie love to play in their very own way, whether scaring each other silly or tickling the letter A. As young readers eagerly turn the pages of the story, they’ll look forward to spotting all the witty side jokes and hilarious details. The fast-paced and zany narrative by Claude Ponti, one of the world’s most beloved children’s book authors, will instantly delight early readers and will just as surely turn reading into play.
Ponti’s aesthetic is quite on display, as each page constitutes a single panel and, while its shape and the iconography and symbols within are drawn from comics, even young readers who have never set eyes on sequential art before will be quite comfortable here...The art reveals an accomplished complexity beneath the charming simplicity, as Ponti effectively distinguishes his characters with the smallest details and strategically uses drops of sweat and motion lines to create a sense of lively fun. —Booklist
