All in step with wing in wing...Chicks can conquer anything! Nerdy Chick has been waiting all day for the Rocket Club meeting. But when she gets there, she finds a disturbing sign tacked to the door: "NO CHICKS ALLOWED!!!" Puzzled, then baffled, then just plain mad, Nerdy Chick sets out to change the rules. Along the way, she meets other chicks who are just like her: passionate and determined. From Soccer Chick to Science Chick and Wordy Chick to Yoga Chick, these chicks aren't willing to take "NO" for an answer.
They rally together, march to the barn at the center of town, and — when they hear "NO" once again — chart their own path forward (or, rather, up, up, and away!). A celebration of girl power and community action, Chicks Rule! is the playful, diverse, victorious anthem chicks everywhere will love.
"Dressed in all sorts of outfits that indicate their professions and interests and carrying placards ('NO MORE'; 'Enough Is Enough'; 'Give Chicks a Chance,' reads one held aloft by a hijabi chick), they arrive at a large white barn, where they are rebuffed again. 'But chicks are strong and chicks are smart,' and working together they build a real rocket that proves that 'Chicks can conquer anything!' Appropriately for her theme, Bardhan-Quallen’s rhyming text has the rhythmic quality of a chant. Kurilla supplies paneled pictures of stubby little chicks of many colors, all frowning adorably with determination." — Kirkus Reviews
