Synopsis

Barn Party by Claire O'Brien

Every animal in the farmyard is looking forward to the Chicken Sisters' party. They've put Cockerel in charge of invitations. As he goes around the farmyard Cockerel thinks that Duck is too wet, Cow is too slobbery, Dog is too flea-ridden and Pig is too muddy. Sorry but you're not invited, we're having a neat party for tidy animals, says Cockerel in a snooty voice. Cockerel goes home, has a bubble bath, polishes his beak and combs his feathers. He's very happy when he looks in the mirror, but the Chicken sisters are not happy when they find out what he's done. They carefully work out a plan to teach him and lesson - and the plan works out very neatly indeed!

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
