Six Little Chicks

A lovely, heart-warming Easter tale of six courageous chicks from the multi-million-selling Jez Alborough. The rhythmic, rhyming text begs to be read aloud.

Busy Hen has five little chicks to look after while making sure number six - still an egg - stays warm. The last thing she needs is hairy, scary Fox sniffing about. She is frantic when the other birds warn her that her chicks are in danger, but her five little chicks are a lot braver than she realises!

From the author of HUG and DUCK IN THE TRUCK, this rollicking, rhythmic Easter text is rammed with catchy refrains that beg to be shouted out. Children will love the repeated action words and thinking of new ways to act them out.

South Wales Evening Post

Dramatic (and) funny ... it’s a winner for children aged 2+

Amanda Craig, The Times

Jez Alborough gives Chick Lit a good name....The book has a bright, jolly and yet predatory feel. The chicks are intensely yellow and the fox has fearsome green eyes – dreaming of a snappy Easter.

Kate Kellaway, The Guardian

beautiful illustrations and a bouncy rhyming text

This beautifully illustrated, rhyming tale uses repetition of words and movements that small children will love to mimic.
