The Chicken Gave it to Me

Written by Anne Fine

The Chicken Gave it to Me Synopsis

A classic children's story from one of our best-loved authors, former Children's Laureate Anne Fine. Gemma doesn't believe a chicken could have written a book - chickens can't even read! But here in front of them is The True Story of Harrowing Farm, and its scratchy pages definitely look, well, chickeny. It is an epic tale of cruelty and bravery, the story of a chicken who flies frillions of miles, reaching the heights of intergalactic superstardom, to try to save us humans . . . Anne Fine's fun school stories have been delighting children for more than 20 years, winning her awards such as the Smarties Book Award and Carnegie Medal along the way.

The Chicken Gave it to Me Press Reviews

'a clever and biting social fable... wit and brilliance sparkle on every page' Junior Bookshelf; 'a terrific little book' Joanna Lumley 'Fine has a rare genius for building a funny, enriching and moving story around the nuts and bolts of school life' The Times * 'A remarkable writer' British Book News * 'Anne Fine is an author who knows how to make readers laugh' Guardian
