(From the publisher):
We all know the joke. We’ve all told it. Kids love to tell it over and over and over again, with as many different punch lines as possible. And now we’ve found out that famous award-winning artists love to tell the joke too—and they have some wacky and downright hilarious ideas about why that chicken really did cross the road.
Mo Willems’s chicken confesses his motives to a police officer; David Shannon’s chicken can drive a car; Marla Frazee’s chicken is looking for a more luxurious coop; and Harry Bliss’s chicken encounters aliens. And this is just the beginning. One thing is for sure—you won’t cross this book without a good laugh!
