The Lovereading4Kids comment
Chosen as one of the Top Ten Best New Books for Children 2015 by Andrea Reece - One of our Books of the Year 2014 Award-winning Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross go to the heart of a modern predicament in this cautionary tale about a young chick who hops into the farmer’s house and starts exploring the delights of the internet. There’s one-click shopping – a hive of bees, a motorbike, a diamond watch and 100 handbags. The farmer blames his wife – where has it all come from? And the chick didn’t stop. Soon, there are scooters for the sheep, skates for the pigs, a car for the cows and a boat for the hens. And, most exciting of all, there is meeting a new friend! But just who will that friend turn out to be?
Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross are the Flanders and Swann of children’s books, responsible for a string of very funny picturebooks, often with a sting in the tail. Chicken Clicking is a modern cautionary tale. Chick sneaks into the farmhouse every evening to browse and shop online. She goes on a fun spending spree, but when the hens sail off in the boat she bought them she feels lonely and accepts a friend request she really shouldn’t. The final page is funny, quite shocking, and makes an important point. For children aged 6 – 10. ~ Andrea Reece
