Chickenhare: half chicken, half rabbit, 100% hero!

What's a chickenhare? A cross between a chicken and a rabbit, of course. And that makes Chickenhare the rarest animal around! So when he and his turtle friend Abe are captured and sold to the evil taxidermist Klaus, they've got to find a way to escape before Klaus turns them into stuffed animals. With the help of two other strange creatures, Banjo and Meg, they might even get away. But with Klaus and his thugs hot on their trail, the adventure is only just beginning for this unlikely quartet of friends.

Raves & reviews:

Praise for Chickenhare:

A 2007 Eisner Award Nominee

"Fun, witty characters and sharp drawings bring Chickenhare to life, but something dark lurks just beneath the surface. A mysterious and whimsical adventure that quickly leads us down the rabbit hole . . ." —Jeff Smith, creator of BONE

"I loved Chickenhare. Chris Grine has a delightfully deranged imagination, and he knows how to tell one heck of a good story." —Stan Saki, creator of Usagi Yojimbo

"Witty comebacks, fast pacing, and a demented taxidermist — Grine's debut has it all." —Publishers Weekly

"An imaginative, outlandish, and rollicking adventure . . . a pleasingly odd world readers can easily slide into and explore." —Kirkus
