Kung Pow Chicken is hot on the evil Birdbrain's tail feathers--that is, until an army of zombies birdy-snatches him! What's a superhero to do?
Praise for KUNG POW CHICKEN #1: LET'S GET CRACKING!*"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 WEEKLYPraise for BRANCHES books: "These books should be considered for larger libraries wanting to enhance their easy-reader collections." -SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL"A nice stepping stone to more advanced chapter books." -BOOKLIST"The extensive full-color illustrations and lively composition suggest a missing link between early readers and graphic novels." -THE BULLETIN OF THE CENTER FOR CHILDREN'S BOOKS
