Appetite for Detention by Sloane Tanen

A cast of chicks brings to life this high school slice-of-life story from artist and author Sloane Tanen. Made from what looks like pompoms, pipe cleaners, and googly eyes, these chicks face problems like fitting in, relationship drama, and their appearance. At first I had a bit of trouble telling the characters apart, but it was remarkable how quickly their own individual personalities took over. I happened upon this book after seeing "Dinner for Schmucks" and its mouseterpieces, which contributed to my reading experiences.

Find it at IndieBound.
