Chickens with a difference! When Pippa hears that chickens can’t see in the dark, she decides things have got to change! What can she do to improve her feathered friends’ night vision? Soon Pippa is cooking up a giant carrot soup. It doesn’t take long before the doubtful chickens are rejoicing in their new powers of seeing! An excellent joke wittily realised in the illustrations to this entertaining story.

Synopsis

Chickens Can't See in the Dark by Kristyna Litten

Little Pippa is no headless chicken. Quite the opposite, in fact. So when Mr Benedict tells his class on Sunnyside Farm that chickens can't see in the dark, Pippa sets out to discover the secrets of night vision. After visiting the library - and then the farm shop - Pippa takes a wheelbarrow of carrots to Mother Hen's Pantry where she cooks up the most delicious carroty banquet ever seen. She then invites her feathered friends to share it. They're all sceptical about what difference eating so many carrots will make but everything is so tasty that they soon gobble down every last mouthful. Then, on a starry, moonlit evening, the chickens discover the delights of seeing in the dark and Little Pippa's plucky determination is celebrated all night long. A quirky tale that will make you giggle and guarantee that you'll never see chickens in the same way again!

About the Author

Kristyna Litten

Kristyna Litten studied illustration at Edinburgh College of Art and graduated in 2010. She learnt to design and create for a wide range of subject matter, often enjoying collaborations with graphic designers, costume designers and writers. She now lives in a beautiful village in Yorkshire where she is heavily reliant on the good old pencil and a great big cup of tea to keep her going, whilst habitually singing, whistling or twiddling her hair.

Her first picture books, Flint's Odd Socks followed by Chickens Can't See In The Dark, were higly commended for the Macmillan Prize two years running. She prefers to draw quickly with crayon to give an energetic line quality to her illustration, often adding colour or other hand-produced textures digitally. Her sophisticated colour palette, interest in patternr and hand drawn typography give Kristyna's work originality and strong identity.
