Synopsis

Pudding and Chips by Penny Matthews

Pudding is a cranky goose. She is as fierce as a tiger and as prickly as barbed wire. And she's as noisy as a street full of fire engines. Nobody tells Pudding what to do - not even Chips the sheepdog. Things are never quiet on Annie's farm! But one warm, windy night, a big red fox comes creeping through the paddocks, dreaming of a chicken dinner, and things start to change...

Reviews

'A well-told, gripping picture-story book tale of life on Annie's farm. There is a nice poetic quality about the writing. The illustrations have an appealing warmth which captures both the humour and the suspenseful adventure embedded in the narrative. Early years listeners and readers will be enchanted by this story's delightful blend of art and language.'

'Pudding and Chips is wonderfully evocative of real-life farming. The illustrations are beautifully drawn and really bring out the character of the animals. This is a great book for early readers to tackle on their own; or for younger children, from about four, to have read to them.'
