Chicken Cheeks

Chicken Cheeks

Chicken Cheeks by Michael Ian Black
Illustrated by Kevin Hawkes

     Let me start by saying that my soon to be 4 year-old son is totally obsessed with the word "booty" (and unfortunately, he's not talking about the pirate kind).  To him everybody is a booty-head and every funny sentence must be closed with the word "booty."  So in his honor, I guess, I'm including Chicken Cheeks.
