Chicks and Salsa

written by Aaron Reynolds and illustrated by Paulette Bogan (2005)


Rooster has a plan. The chickens are tired of feed, the ducks are tired of fish, and the pigs are tired of slop. Rooster convinces them to prepare a Mexican feast with chips and salsa, guacamole, and nachos. Fiesta – Ole! Unfortunately for them, the farmer and his wife have the same idea and have used all the garden vegetables for their dinner. But have no fear, Rooster doesn’t give up so easily… he’s now reading a French cookbook – Ooh la la!

Aaron Reynolds and Paulette Bogan work together to concoct a spicy international feast for the reader. Pick up a copy to enjoy today. And just in case it whets your appetite for your own Mexican feast, there are recipes at the end of the story for Hog Wild Nachos, Quackamole, and Rooster’s Roasted Salsa. Ole!
