Chicks Rule!

Abrams Books for Young Readers
written by Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen

All in step with wing in wing . . . Chicks can conquer anything! Nerdy Chick has been waiting all day for the Rocket Club meeting. But when she gets there, she finds a disturbing sign tacked to the door: “NO CHICKS ALLOWED!!!” Puzzled, then baffled, then just plain mad, Nerdy Chick sets out to change the rules.

A celebration of girl power and community action, Chicks Rule! is the playful, diverse, victorious anthem chicks everywhere will love.

*School Library Journal "This inspirational picture book demonstrates how girls can accomplish anything when they value their unique abilities and depend on one another in the face of opposition ... Vivid and expressive digital illustrations turn these first wordless scenes into a series of emotions that set the stage..."
