Chicks and Salsa

by Aaron Reynolds Illustrated by Paulette Bogan

What happens at Nuthatcher Farm when the chickens get tired of the same old chicken feed? The rooster hatches a plan: With a pinch of genius, a dash of resourcefulness, and a little pilfering from the farmer's garden, the chickens whip up a scrumptious snack of chips and salsa.

When the rest of the barnyard gets a whiff of the spicy smells and want to join in, it can mean only one thing: fiesta! But when the big day arrives, all their spicy southwestern supplies are gone. Could Mr. and Mrs. Nuthatcher have caught on to the flavor craze?
