Well, the Chicken Squad is at it again. They are so sure there is a bear loose in their town. Now they have a network of helpers throughout the town giving them clues and their helpers are as wild with their deduction as the Squad.

I love these guys. They don't get the clues put together correctly but they solve the case anyway. I laugh as they follow the clues. I never know what they will do next.

The Chicken Squad is back, and now must solve a mystery close to home. Their human, (the one who feeds them) Barbara, is missing. There has also been a report of a headless bear roaming the area. With the help of their neighborhood animal friends, the squad puts together all the clues given to find Barbara, but will it be in time, or will the headless bear get her?

101 pages. The Chicken Squad is at it again and this time they must solve a mystery. Where on earth did their caretaker go? Humorous and mysterious story that kids will enjoy. Highly recommended for Grades 4-5.

I thought the members of the Chicken Squad were adorably funny, but EM lost interest after giving a few chapters a try.
