The Chicken Gave It To Me. 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. Kitty Killin is not only a good storyteller, but also the World's Greatest Expert when it comes to mothers having new and unwanted boyfriends.

When a chicken pushes a small book towards Andrew on his way to school one morning, and won't leave him alone until he picks it up, Andrew's friend Gemma finds it hard to believe. But when the two children start to read the contents of the book The True Story of Harrowing Farm they find themselves deeply moved by the chicken's tale. And if chickens have never moved you befo. When a chicken pushes a small book towards Andrew on his way to school one morning, and won't leave him alone until he picks it up, Andrew's friend Gemma finds it hard to believe. I know Anne Fine through Tulip Touch -a very dark book that was geared towards teenage readers. I picked this book up as the title threw me a little. It's brilliant and deserves to be more famous. what if humans were in that situation.

by - A classic children's story from one of our best-loved authors, former Children's Laureate Anne Fine.

About book: I think that this fable is incredibly exciting and engaging for middle aged children, therefore it would be ideal for story-time because it is likely to open the possibilities for discussions. I also think it would be a great book to set tasks for the children and incorporate Harrowing Farm into their art lessons by maybe getting them to do illustrations similar to the ones inside the book, or even have a school trip to a local farm.

She has published over 50 books for children, including favourites such as Ivan the Terrible and The Angel of Nitshill Road. When she was young, it never occurred to Anne that she might be a writer. But one day, unable to get to the library in a snowstorm, she sat down and started to write a novel. Clearly this was the right job for her, for she has never stopped writing for more than a few weeks since.

Written by Anne Fine, Audiobook narrated by Richard Mitchley. And if chickens have never moved you before, prepare to shed some tears now because this chicken is special. She is risking what is left of her life by flying frillions of miles in a spaceship to try and save us humans from a terrible fate

This is a cute, yet thought-provoking little book about what would happen if the tables were turned on mankind. In this book, little, green men come from outer space to take humans back to their planet to eat! All of the humans lives depend on one small, stowaway hen, who thinks she is TOO small to make a difference, but in the end makes a REALLY big differance on the little green planet and their views of how "inferior" humans are.
This book, with it's large print, makes a great book for kids of all ages! It is, I think, a most inspiring book. It makes it very clear that no matter how small or differant you are you can make a difference in people's lives. (Even if you are a little chicken on a big, green planet!) --Courtney Kelly

Read this to a class, 4 or 5 out of five. Liked the ending. Good messages, rhymes remembered.
A good moral to get us thinking about where our food comes from
