?I just went to the store!?
What happens one frantic week when everyone forgets to put the things they need on Mom?s shopping list? First, it?s cookies, but no milk. Then macaroni, no cheese. And don?t even ask about the toilet paper!
Newcomer Kristen Darbyshire?s quirky humor, fresh, graphic style, and sweetly expressive family of chickens will make this a favorite with kids . . . and the beleaguered grocery shoppers in their lives.

Kristen Darbyshire lives in Upstate New York, where she works as a middle school art teacher. This is her fi rst book.From Booklist:
Nothing frustrates this family of chickens like running out of their favorite grub—although, honestly, “pickled grubs” are among the smaller chickens’ least-favorite menu items. After running out of cereal, one chick recounts the irritating past week: on Monday they had pancakes but no syrup (ketchup makes a poor replacement); on Tuesday they had toothbrushes but no toothpaste (no matter that chickens lack teeth); and so on, until things get so out of control that there’s a—ahem—situation with the lack of toilet paper. The illustrations are clear and bright, with dot-eyed birdies peeking from colorful, abstract backgrounds. Thursday provides the biggest visual break, as Mom’s path through the grocery aisles is tracked with a dashed line. The rhythm of the story seems a bit off, and some parents may bristle at the traditional portrayal of the mom as food preparer; but it’s hard to resist this ode to that simple tool too few of us use: the shopping list. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Daniel Kraus
