Chicken Come Home

A new adventure-packed tale from the team behind Grab that Rabbit

Dolly is a very plucky chicken who likes to lay her egg in a different place each day. But on this particular day she’s chosen a place to roost that takes her far from home and puts her in a lot of danger. Dolly has found a warm and cozy basket in which to lay her egg, but as she settles down to roost, there’s a roar and a lurch and the basket takes off. The basket just happens to be attached to a hot air balloon! Will Dolly manage to get home in time to meet her owner from school? This lyrical story is perfect for reading aloud and packed with page-turning suspense, while each richly illustrated page is full of detailed visual delights.
