Bloomsbury, 2014. ISBN 9781619634022
(Ages: 2-4) Board book. Chick and Pug enjoy backyard adventures, playing with their squeaky toys and pretending to be superheroes. After a nap, they wake to discover their favourite toy Squeaky Hamburger is missing, stolen by a new huge, hairy, slobbery dog. While Pug keeps on napping, the little chicken sets off in pursuit of the thief, passed the sand-pit, under the clothesline, looking for their toy. The Dude turns the Squeaky Hamburger into the Squishy, Slimy Hamburger, luckily there are more toys to play with.
Jennifer Sattler's bold, colourful illustrations bring the characters to life - little Chick bravely balanced on the Dude's nose, the close-up of his dribbling face and the friends playing in the yard. Some of the phrases used require explanation for this young audience.
