Young adult novel published by Breathing Books in 2018 as a soft cover/paperback and eBook.
The second book in Cornelia Funke’s popular THE WILD CHICKS series, THE WILD CHICKS: CLASS TRIP follows our favorite rival gangs as they go on an overnight school adventure. The Wild Chicks and the Pygmies have had a truce since the end of the first book, but at the beginning of CLASS TRIP, the Pygmies declare their truce invalid outside their hometown, and the mischief begins again! In addition to its merry mischief, CLASS TRIP touches on issues that are still as relevant for middle-grades readers as they were when the books were first published in Germany: a new girl wants to join their tightly knit group, one of the Wild Chicks deals with divorcing parents, and others begin to have their first real crushes. Other relevant themes include conservation, ecology, and learning rudimentary scientific theory―the art of asking questions, and discovering provable truths.
