Chickens Can't See in the Dark

Publisher: Oxford University Press

Review

Little Pippa Chicken becomes the talk of Sunnyside Farm in this entertaining picture book.

When teacher Mr Benedict tells his class that chickens can’t see in the dark, the desperately disappointed Pippa decides to prove him wrong. Wise Mr Owl and Miss Featherbrain the librarian just laugh at her - but then Pippa unearths a copy of Old Hen’s Tales which reveals that carrots will help you see in the dark.

Pippa lays on an incredible carrot feast; carrot cookies, curry, quiches, and caramels. As everyone tucks in the sky grows dark and the moonlight reveals a glimmering, mysterious world they’ve never seen before.

Children will love the engaging illustrations brimming with quirky details, including hen houses to die for, in this appealing picture book. A jaunty tale about daring to be different, and finding things out for yourself.
