Quinny and Hopper by Adriana Brad Schanen
Quinny is a loud, energetic, imaginative third grader who has just moved from New York City to Whisper Valley, a small town as quiet as its name that seems to have a million trees but no people and where even the houses look bored. Quinny is very, very, extra-very excited about meeting Hopper, her next-door neighbor. Hopper is not so sure what to think about Quinny. He is as quiet as Quinny is loud. Together the the unlikely duo embarks on a hilarious adventure to capture Whisper Valley’s feral zebra chicken.
