The House of Klaus

The first installment in the series is titled Chickenhare: The House of Klaus in which we are introduced to the Chickenhare universe as well as a few major characters, Banjo, a krampus (which has not yet been explained) and Meg, yet another mystery. One new race has also been introduced, the Shromph.

On February 1, 2013, Scholastic (through its Graphix imprint) reissued the book in full color.[2][4] The color edition, named Chickenhare, featured new cover design, a new logo and additional new pages.[5]

Fire in the Hole

The follow-up titled Chickenhare: Fire in the Hole follows Chickenhare as he attempts to rescue his friend Abe's soul from the depths of Hell.

Film

In July 2011, it was announced that Sony Pictures Animation and Dark Horse Comics are adapting the Chickenhare series into an animated feature film.[6] In October 2012, Grine wrote on the official Chickenhare Facebook page: "Read the screenplay last night. It's quite a bit different from the source material, but that doesn't mean it wasn't terrific! I honestly enjoyed it. Now let's hope it stays on course!"[7] In June 2013, he wrote: "Finally got to read the 2nd draft of the Chickenhare screenplay. Man, if this thing makes it to the big screen, you guys in are in for a treat! It's SO full of adventure and laughs I almost can't believe it. Let's all cross our fingers."[8]
