Peepsqueak! (Hardcover, 2012) N/A 12/31/2019
laclark153 said: Clark’s debut introduces readers to a plucky little chick whose determination helps him achieve his dream, no matter how impossible it might seem. From the moment he hatches, sporting a bright red shirt emblazoned with “P.S.,” Peepsqueak shows his individuality. While the other chicks take their time hatching, “[h]e was on the move!” His dreams set him apart, as well: He wants to fly more than anything. The farm animals all tell him he can’t, but that doesn’t stop him from trying. He launches himself off a stone wall, off a hill, even off a tower of other chicks. He spends all day jumping…and falling. But all this practice is not for naught—Old Gray Goose rewards Peepsqueak’s perseverance with a flight on his back, and the farm animals celebrate his ersatz success at finally flying. But Peepsqueak barely registers their congratulations
