Funky Chicken: A Bushy Tale of Crocs and Chooks, is a hilarious and fun tale about a gathering of bush animals in the outback of Australia. A pretty crazy looking chicken is amongst many other native Australian characters fighting to find who the most unique animal of them all is.
This picture book comes with a CD sound track that can be played alongside the story, making it an enjoyable & memorable read for children of all ages. The use of rhyme and repetition throughout the story enables young readers to engage with and make predictions about what they think might happen next.
We really loved reading this book and it has been in hot demand after being put on our class bookshelf. The book arrived to us with the author’s signature and a short message which we were also stoked about!
