The Lovereading4Kids comment

Aberdeen's war continues between the children and the army of giant robot chickens. Can Jesse and Rayna work to defeat the dreaded Chickenator?

This is a spectacular sequel to the riotous pun-filled Attack of the Giant Robot Chickens, winner of a 2015 Scottish Children's Book Award.


Revenge of the Giant Robot Chickens by Alex McCall

Not too long ago the children of Aberdeen struck a blow against the tyranny of their oppressors -- an army of giant robot chickens. But the chickens were not defeated and now the city's warring factions have formed a council hoping to keep their chicken overlords at bay. But there's a new robot chicken on the block, the Chickenator! When the new chicken starts to target council members, pecking them up one by one, Rayna suspects fowl play. How are the chickens tracking council members down so precisely? Could there be a spy in the council? Meanwhile, Jesse tries to hatch a plan to crack the chickens and set the human captives, including his older brother, free. Who will have the last cluck?


'A perfect choice for any child (or adult!) that loves puns. This book was filled with them, and it far surpassed my eggspectations ... Revenge of the Giant Robot Chickens is a great read that really cracked me up, and I can't wait to read it to my child!' 'This was an exciting story that grabbed me right from the start ... I'll definitely be recommending this book to my friends.
