Beak to the Future (Two-Headed Chicken #2)
Reading Level: 4th − 5th Grade

The two-headed chicken is back, with twice the adventure, twice the jokes, and a lot more heads (wait, did they just accidentally turn into a double-headed space snake?).

Having lost the Astrocap(TM) somewhere in the multiverse, our intrepid hero dons the Timecap(TM) to scour the timestream, which looks a lot like broccoli, in search of it. But danger and drama await with every time-hopping POOZB! of the Timecap(TM), including hungry dinosaurs, fierce werewolves, poet Emily Dickinson, a fish with a mustache who wants to talk about feelings, and even the return of the chicken's archenemy, Kernel Antlers, the shape-shifting moose!

With lively art and quirky nods to history and literature, readers will be swept along for oodles of zany escapades--and brought into the book itself through games, puzzles, drawing activities, and even as a vital character. Tom Angleberger's absurdist humor shines on every page of this nonstop ride.

Review quotes

Among the infinite universes of the multiverse, anything is possible...even time travel. . . . The various antics and shenanigans are funny and well served by the dynamic art. Interactive pages create an extra level of engagement. . . Amusing.
