A fantastically fun, funky book! This absurd tale will engage adults and children alike with characters that are wonderfully silly and appealing. The rhyming format encourages children to develop chronological awareness, and the planet names require non-word decoding. Underlying this fun story is the issue of what makes a good place to live; which can be the starting point for further discussion with young readers. The strong narrative also brings along themes of identity and belonging, and about having ambition and chasing your dreams. Colourful illustrations support and extend the text, and end page illustrations provide further opportunities for prediction and discussion.

Funky Chicken rockets into space in a whacky planet-hopping new adventure. Absurd and clever! Brilliant in text and illustration’
