About The Book

Best friends Chi-Chi the chicken and Pey-Pey the penguin both want the same cupcake in the second book in this sweet Level 1 Ready-to-Read Graphics series about celebrating differences!

Chi-Chi and Pey-Pey are excited when they get cupcakes at snack time, but there is only one cupcake that has purple frosting—and they both want it! Can they find a way to share before they’re left with nothing but crumbs? When these two work together, anything is possible.

Ready-to-Read Graphics books give readers the perfect introduction to the graphic novel format with easy-to-follow panels, speech bubbles with accessible vocabulary, and sequential storytelling that is spot-on for beginning readers. There’s even a how-to guide for reading graphic novels at the beginning of each book.
