They were the fuzziest, funniest and most finely feathered baby chooks I had ever seen.

Since the death of Mei's father, her ma has refused to keep animals on the family farm. So when Mei finds two baby chickens, she shares her delightful discovery with no-one but her older brother Guo.

Mei does her best to keep her newfound friends a secret, but all does not go as planned. When Ma sells the chooks to the fearsome one-eyed butcher, their fates seem sealed.

A heartfelt tale of love, loss and the power of kindnes set against the backdrop of rural China.

Tim Winton In Conversation

For over thirty years, Tim Winton has written novels in which the natural world is as much a living presence as any character. This October Tim will be appearing in-conversation for two special events (Perth and Melbourne only) to share his personal relationship with the Australian landscape, how it came to be, how it has determined his ideas, his writing and his life. Both events will be followed by a book signing.
