Graphic Novel Spotlight: Chickenhare

Chickenhare by Chris Grine

Chickenhare is certainly unusual. Chickenhare, a chicken/rabbit hybrid, and his best friend, a bearded box turtle named Abe, find themselves about to be sold to a taxidermist named Klaus. Klaus is, to put it simply, insane. He's obsessed with a lost pet goat called Mr. Buttons. The plot centers around Chickenhare and Abe's attempts to escape from Klaus's clutches. Along the way they meed a quirky krampus named Banjo and a mysterious figure named Meg. For such an odd concept, it's surprisingly atmospheric and carefully plotted. It's bizarre and hilarious and wonderful This is not a book for everyone, certainly, but if you're willing to head down a weird road Chickenhare is a delight.
