You're probably familiar with Doreen Cronin's picture books (Diary of a Worm;Click, Clack, Moo; Duck for President). They are hilarious fun, both for young and not-so-young readers alike.
I just finished her easy chapter book The Trouble With Chickens. A former search and rescue dog finds retired life not so peaceful when a pushy chicken enlists his help to find her chicks. There are plenty of sketches to accompany the written humor, making it appealing for those just beginning to enjoy chapter books. With plenty of sarcasm and wit, this makes a great read-aloud to share with your readers.
