Reviews

Praise for Let's Get Cracking! (Kung Pow Chicken #1):

An Amazon Best Book of the Month, January 2014

* "Marko's debut is a perfectly puntastic page-turner. Hybrids of comics and traditional pictures, the goofy all-color illustrations propel the fast-moving, high-interest story. 'Ham and eggs!' -- you don't want to miss this!" -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"This hilarious kickoff to the Kung Pow Chicken series [is] just the thing for beginning readers." -- Publishers Weekly

"Step aside, Captain Underpants! There is a new hero in town -- this time, with feathers... Fresh, funny, and packed with full-color illustrations, this new transitional series will be an instant hit with readers looking for silly fun and a touch of mystery." -- Booklist

"Frequent poultry plays on words are sure to ellicit giggles from young readers. This [series] will have broad appeal among independent readers who have outgrown easy readers but are not yet ready for books relying more on text than illustration." -- School Library Journal
