Who lives on the ice,
is round and is plump?
He has tusks in his mouth,
and stripes on his rump.
 Zack the Zebrus
He’s part zebra and part walrus!

A luthier and game-creator-turned-author, Brian Calhoun grew up in the countryside of Rockbridge County, Virginia. Calhoun relocated to Charlottesville in his early twenties and launched Rockbridge Guitar, an artisan business crafting high-end acoustic guitars for musicians, including Dave Matthews, Jason Mraz, Brandi Carlile, Warren Haynes, and more. After playing a board game he deemed boring, Calhoun came up with the idea for the Chickapig game in 2013. Calhoun had always thought of writing children’s books, and the characters from the game seeded the idea for his first book, Little Joe Chickapig. Calhoun is currently developing a new game, 25 Outlaws, with his Chickapig partner, Dave Matthews.

Author and creator of the Chickapig brand Brian Calhoun captures the essence of the board game with lift-the-flap sections to give preschoolers an interactive reading experience. Behind the last flap is a mylar mirror for readers to answer the question: “Who lives here?”
