From the hilarious author of Dragons Love Tacos, Adam Rubin, and the riotous illustrator of The Legend of Rock Paper Scissors, Adam Rex, comes Gladys the Magic Chicken. The two Adams take us on an epic adventure that follows a tantalizing chicken, Gladys, as she unknowingly enchants her way through Ancient Times. What came first, the chicken or the egg? The answer: Gladys! Gladys came first.
Gladys the chicken must be magic. After all, for everyone who encounters her, a wish is granted. The Shepherd Boy wishes to be beautiful, the Brave Swordsman wishes to join the Royal Guard, the Purple Pooh-bah wishes for his only daughter to be happy, and the Learned Princess wishes to escape the palace. And one by one, each of these wishes comes true. But . . . is Gladys really magic? Or is everyone making their own fortune? Either way, it adds up to one heck of an adventure for a chicken named Gladys. Blending a classic storybook feel with a thoroughly modern sense of humor, this side-splitting read aloud is perfect for anyone who wishes to see magic in the world—even if they are only looking at a chicken.
