Stuck in the Mud by Jane Clarke, Garry Parsons


Stuck in the Mud by Jane Clarke, Garry Parsons

Early in the morning, down on the farm, a new day is dawning, peaceful and calm. But then chaos strikes - Hen discovers one of her chicks is stuck in the mud! One by one, all the farm animals try and help pull the chick out, but of course they get stuck too. And seeing all her friends stuck in the mud is just when the naughty chick plops out - 'You pushed and you pulled, again and again, but I'm not stuck now and I wasn't stuck then!'.
