One of our Books of the Year 2014 - June 2014 Book of the Month Award-winning Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross go to the heart of a modern predicament in this cautionary tale about a young chick who hops into the farmer’s house and starts exploring the delights of the internet. There’s one-click shopping – a hive of bees, a motorbike, a diamond watch and 100 handbags. The farmer blames his wife – where has it all come from? And the chick didn’t stop. Soon, there are scooters for the sheep, skates for the pigs, a car for the cows and a boat for the hens. And, most exciting of all, there is meeting a new friend! But just who will that friend turn out to be?


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. One night a chick goes into the farmer’s house and starts using his computer. Over the next few nights, she shops online. Then she arranges to meet a friend that she has made online – but this friend is not what they seem. This clever cautionary tale, designed to aid teaching young children about internet safety, is very relevant to the technological age. (Ages 3–6)
