Bertie and the Alien Chicken

Publisher: Barrington Stoke

Bertie has to spend the summer holidays on Long Bottom Farm with his Uncle Brian. He knows it will be very boring. But then he meets a talking alien chicken called Nugget, and things get interesting. Nugget has to send the Earth’s most valuable resource back to his fellow Nurgles or they’ll blow up the planet! Can Bertie help Nugget complete his mission and save Earth?

This short, accessible story has Jenny’s trademark humour running throughout. Set on yellow paper, in a dyslexia-friendly font, and comprising 13 very short chapters, this book will appeal to readers of all abilities. Alexsei Bitskoff’s illustrations capture every funny moment brilliantly, particularly the facial expressions of the often bewildered Bertie. This would be a strong addition to any primary school library.
