The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.

The chicken gave it to me

Whilst declutter ing these past few days, I came across this book.


It’s a lovely story with a good message. The message is about factory farming. It revolves around a chicken’s memoirs, a trip to another planet and the ‘true story of harrowing farm.’

I haven’t come across much environmental fiction for children but I enjoyed this book as its quite provocative but thought provoking.

The author, Anne Fine, has skill with thought provoking children’s stories.

An interesting book.

And my hens liked it too!

    the joys of decluttering – all the treasures that get excavated! And what a grand book! I’ll keep my eye out for a copy – for my grandkids…. or for Austin! Thanks for sharing.
